Leave a legacy through Lexikin

Our mission is to protect people’s health from epidemics and disasters and ensure that communities are resilient to major challenges, with 5 main focus areas:

Deliberate Biological Threats

Opportunities and Risks in the Life Sciences

Clade X was a day-long pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security on May 15, 2018, in Washington, DC. The exercise simulates a series of National Security Council-convened meetings of 10 US government leaders, played by individuals prominent in the fields of national security or epidemic response. Drawing from actual events, Clade X, and other similar exercises hosted by the Center identifies important policy issues and preparedness challenges that could be solved with sufficient political will and attention. These exercises educate senior leaders at the highest level of US and international governments and leaders in global industries.
