FBI on campus for chemical security presentations Nov. 7

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has determined that university laboratories are vulnerable to criminals and extremists wanting to steal explosive precursor chemicals, toxic industrial chemicals or chemical warfare precursors.

Next week, Special Agent Brandon Grant, the weapons of mass destruction coordinator in the Jackson FBI office, will discuss a number of incidents that have occurred at university laboratories over the past 10 years, and what Mississippi State can do to reduce the risk of theft of these chemicals.

These responsible conduct of research sessions will be extremely beneficial to the chemical user community at MSU, according to MSU biosafety officer Patricia Cox.

The seminars will be held Thursday [Nov. 7] in Bost Extension Center's theater from 10-11 a.m., and then repeated from 1-2 p.m.
