Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $2,970,000 to the Bipartisan Commission on Biodefense for general support.1 The Bipartisan Commission on Biodefense advocates for improvements to U.S. biodefense policy through a variety of activities, including hosting public meetings, publishing reports, and conducting outreach to those in the U.S. government.

This follows our January 2018 support to the Blue Ribbon Study Panel on Biodefense and falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.

The grant amount was updated in October 2020.
