New HAZMAT protocol featured in Nature
Decontamination protocol developed by JIBC's SIMTEC project
Earlier this year, JIBC’s Simulation, Training and Exercise Collaboratory (SIMTEC) made national headlines for its research into ways to reduce the psychosocial stressors associated with decontamination during a CBRNE – a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear or Explosive Event.
Now, that research has earned space in an even bigger forum: the online edition of Nature, the prestigious international science journal.
SIMTEC and JIBC Research Chair Dr. Laurie Pearce are mentioned within an article dealing with the U.K. government’s plan to treat mass civilian casualties in the immediate aftermath of a CBRNE.
