Announcing: Duke Congressional Briefing Series, July 23

Mark your calendars! The Duke University Congressional Briefing Series returns to Capitol Hill next Tuesday, July 23 for a lunch-time panel entitled “Improving and Streamlining Airport Screening Through Science.”

Duke University is a national leader among universities in Department of Homeland Security sponsored research, with much of the current funding used to support projects that seek to improve airport and baggage screening protocols.  Please join us for a discussion of the latest breakthroughs that seek to improve and streamline screening procedures, both through revolutionary x-ray technology that goes beyond providing the outline of a bag’s contents to decipher its molecular structure and through visual cognition performance in airport screening procedures.

Moderated by Robin Hamilton, an Emmy-award winning journalist, the panel will feature David Brady, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Stephen Mitroff, Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience.
