Drs. Joan Phelan and Denise Murphy Appointed to Bioterrorism and Catastrophe Response Task Force

NYU Dentistry's Bioterrorism and Catastrophe Response Task Force has gained two new members: Dr. Joan Phelan, Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Oral Pathology, and Dr. Denise Murphy, Clinical Associate Professor of General Dentistry and Management Science.

“With the addition of these two individuals,” said Dr. Dianne Rekow, Director of Translational Research and the Task Force Chairperson, “NYU Dentistry's Bioterrorism and Catastrophe Response Task Force gains substantial expertise that will add to our ability to develop strategies and a structure for a coordinated, collaborative response effort to deal with the threat of terrorism, including bioterrorism and other catastrophes.”
