Sens. Johnny Isakson, Gary Peters earn ‘Biosecurity Champion’ honor
“A champion for biosecurity is a champion for the American people.”
WASHINGTON, DC – The Alliance for Biosecurity has honored two bipartisan Senators as the U.S. Senate's Biosecurity Champions - Sens. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and Gary Peters (D-Mi.).
Sen. Johnny Isakson accepts the Biosecurity Champion Award from representatives of the Alliance for Biosecurity.
Sen. Gary Peters accepts the Biosecurity Champion Award from representatives of the Alliance for Biosecurity.
The special recognition reflects Sens. Isakson and Peters' outstanding work in improving our nation’s capabilities to prevent and combat chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and pandemic biosecurity threats to our nation.

“We applaud your dedication and commitment to the nation’s efforts to prepare, prevent, and protect against public health threats,” said Chris Frech, Co-Chair of the Alliance for Biosecurity and Senior Vice President of Global Government Affairs for Emergent BioSolutions, in a letter to the Senators. “Your efforts speak loudly of your concern for the peace of mind and safety of our people.

“Indeed, a champion for biosecurity is a champion for the American people.”
 
“For more than a decade, the Alliance for Biosecurity has proven vital to ensuring that U.S. health security remains strong,” added Brent MacGregor, Co-Chair of the Alliance for Biosecurity and Senior Vice President of Global Commercial Operations for Seqirus. “Your support enables our unified message to be heard, understood and acted upon, and we thank you for your partnership.”
 
The Alliance for Biosecurity is the leading industry voice on biosecurity issues and is committed to building and strengthening the partnership between government and industry to provide solutions to threats facing our nation. The Alliance advocates for public policies and funding to support the rapid development, production, stockpiling, and distribution of critically needed medical countermeasures. 
 
The Alliance and its members commend Sens. Isakson and Peters' partnership in advancing public safety and well-being against biosecurity threats, and it is for this reason that the Alliance’s Board of Directors selected them as this year’s Biosecurity Champions in the US Senate.
