NSRI and its colleagues throughout the University of Nebraska are internationally recognized for extensive expertise in the detection and identification of chemical and biological agents.
Our research focuses on the accurate detection of known and unknown threats and the development of tools that are field-deployable, provide rapid results, recognize bioactive levels and require minimal training to use. In short, the nation depends on our abilities when it comes to dangerous pathogens.
The chemical and biological defense capabilities of NU and NSRI include experienced senior scientists and deputy directors with extensive applied knowledge and subject matter expertise in the area of CWMD.
As a trusted-agent of the Department of Defense, we work with colleagues across federal agencies to modernize defense assets through:
- Rapid prototyping of novel sample collection and transportation material solutions
- RDT&E of next generation chemical threat sensors and decontamination systems
