How others can help me

Looking to connect with anyone in the EA community regarding biosecurity. 

How I can help others

Can help with community building or general biosecurity discussions


Hi! I am the "third" co-founder in this scenario. Happy to DM about why this particular choice was made and why it made sense for this team. 

This is a great report! Adding it to my to-do list! If I have more questions how would you prefer me to contact you? Feel free to reply with a DM. 

Could you link the prediction markets for this if you create them? Thanks in advance!

Thank you for this post! Very excited to have this report on hand! I plan to go through it in more depth and leave some more nuanced feedback. I want to add a note that I would also be interested in seeing the rough cost-effectiveness estimates as @JoshuaBlake  has mentioned. 

This was pretty much my goal with this! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. 

That depends on your primary interest in biosecurity. If it is more policy-oriented then maybe the Johns Hopkins or the BWC ones. If you are more interested in epidemiology then maybe the Pandora Report? If you are more interested in technological developments then newsletters 13-15 might be a better fit. These are just loose suggestions.
