With that in mind, a Texas A&M University researcher has received a $389,000 grant from the Department of Defense's National Security Education Program to develop a new curriculum on emerging diseases, food safety and bioterrorism. Dr. Gale Wagner of the College of Veterinary Medicine, with help from the University of Georgia, is coordinating the effort to help U.S. veterinarians and those in foreign countries - especially Chile, Argentina and Brazil - develop ways to ensure food safety and to prevent possible acts of bioterrorism.
Texas A&M will receive $2.6 million over a five-year period to conduct its bioterrorism research activities, Adams said.
"Our primary goal is to develop human brucellosis and Q-Fever vaccines, which are somewhat similar diseases," Adams explained. Tsolis will work on brucellosis vaccines while Samuel will concentrate on Q- Fever, Adams added.
"Both diseases have been weaponized as terror agents by several countries, so the threat already exists. Both diseases are rarely fatal, but they make a person very sick with flu-like conditions and cause high fever. Both are difficult to cure, and with brucellosis, once you have it, you usually have it for the rest of your life."
