ObjectivesThe ARI Program has two primary objectives:
1) Engage the academic community to advance fundamental knowledge for CBRN sciences applicable to Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) with emphasis on fundamental research to solve long-term, high-risk challenges and 2) Develop human capital for the CBRN science and engineering profession.
