A
Task Forces

At its first meeting, the Committee on Emerging Microbial Threats to Health decided to form four task forces to obtain input from the scientific community at large. Each task force (with the exception of Task Force 4) was composed of both committee and noncommittee members and a rapporteur. Task Forces 1 through 3 dealt with specific categories of organisms; Task Force 4 examined policy options that the committee might wish to consider in developing its recommendations. It was later decided to establish a fifth task force to refine the recommendations drafted by the full committee at its third meeting in January 1992. In the lists below, committee members are designated by an asterisk.

TASK FORCE 1

Bacteria, Rickettsiae, and Chlamydiae

Task Force 1 met in Washington, D.C. on May 20-21, 1991, with the following participants:

BARRY R. BLOOM,* Department of Microbiology and Immunology and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University

ROBERT L. BUCHANAN,* Microbial Food Safety Research Unit, Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Eastern Regional Research Center
