January 28, 2014
A team led by Akos Vertes will receive up to $14.6 million over five years from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop an approach to rapidly identify the root of biological and chemical threats. The researchers are tasked with reducing to 30 days a process that can take years or decades. If successful, the approach could bolster national security efforts to combat these threats.
