In this episode of CSR’s podcast On the Verge, Christine Parthemore, CEO of the Council on Strategic Risks, hosts a conversation with Andy Weber and Alexander Titus about bringing opportunities presented by biotechnology to the Department of Defense. Titus also speaks about the importance of good communication across the science and defense communities, and what steps can be taken toward effective public-private collaboration.

Previously, Titus served as the inaugural Assistant Director for Biotechnology at the U.S. Department of Defense. He has worked across the public and private sectors and done unique work in the bio-AI intersection, and has been a leader in community-building and public communications regarding the promise of biotech for addressing some of the world’s greatest challenges.

  1. Thank you to the three of you. Very interesting and well done. There are many ways to advocate for science and technology that is needed by our warfihhters, however understanding that technology or science path is where communications breaks down. I believe you need to relate a forward looking outcome from the science and technology and that gets the attention of senior leaders.
    Well done podcast and again thank you for continuing to do them.
    Best Regards,
    Doug Bryce
