This project will address the global risks and opportunities related to the practice of 'gain-of-function' research with highly pathogenic avian influenza. It will ensure a fair, credible, open debate that airs all responsible views on the issues, and integrate the results so funders and policymakers in the U.S. government and abroad may apply them to their decisions.
