The Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) strives to address the risks posed by outbreaks of infectious diseases by promoting best practices in biological safety and security, improving partner countries’ capacities to safely and rapidly detect and report dangerous infectious agents, and establishing and enhancing international research partnerships.
Cubic is the lead integrator for the following task areas of CBEP:
Biological Weapons (BW) Security - Enhance partner country's/region’s capability to prevent the sale, theft, diversion, or accidental release of BW-related materials, technology, and expertise by improving biological safety and security (BS&S) standards
Detection and Diagnosis Enhancement - Enhance partner country's/region’s capability to detect, diagnose, and report endemic and epidemic, man-made or natural EDPs, bio-terror attacks, and potential pandemics
Sustainability - Ensure the developed capabilities are designed to be sustainable
Research Engagement - Facilitate engagement of partner country's/region’s scientific and technical personnel in research areas of interest to both the partner country/region and the U.S.
