Dr Hammer selected as one of the 2024 Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative Fellows

Dr Charlotte Hammer, Everitt Butterfield Research Fellow in Biomedical Sciences, has been selected as one of the Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.

Dr Hammer was one of 30 people accepted by the Center into its Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative (ELBI) fellowship programme from a pool of 350 applicants.

This part-time Fellowship will allow Dr Hammer to broaden her expertise in biosecurity, network and build leadership skills.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security works to protect people from epidemics and disasters and has recently been named a World Health Organisation and Pan-American Health Organisation Collaborating Center for Global Health Security.

In March, Dr Hammer will join the other Fellows from the ELBI Class of 2024 for an introductory workshop in Washington DC.

Dr Hammer said: “I am honoured and delighted to have been selected as part of the ELBI Class of 2024. The list of biosecurity experts who have previously participated in the ELBI includes some of the most impressive individuals of this field and I am very excited to meet and learn from this amazing group of Fellows and alumni over the coming months.”
