University Outreach Engagement Live Webinar

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) is the U.S. Department of Defense’s official Combat Support Agency for countering weapons of mass destruction. DTRA Chemical and Biological Technologies Department (J9-CB) is actively working to protect civilians, American warfighters and their allies from threats posed by chemical and biological weapons. The agency leadership recognizes that important research development trends and emerging technology occur outside the defense environment, advances that can significantly contribute to DTRAs mission and objectives.
