Excellent @cenmag article by @L_Howes on the potential dual-use nature of AI-assisted drug design. Glad that I could contribute to the article with my thoughts. It's key to raise awareness on dual-use research of concern. Let's keep the conversation going.
Learn how static detonation chambers work with this informative set of videos by @acwanews! SDCs are playing an important role in destroying the last vestiges of the U.S. chemical weapons stockpile. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4mv7WES-tY&list=PL-TC5l9SvK1XChJcyMUNJpwyM9DONyeFw&index=3 https://twitter.com/acwanews/status/1523684470859223041

#OnThisDay in 1997 the #ChemicalWeaponsConvention entered into force. For 25 years the CWC has advanced the field of #chemistry, provided opportunities for #chemists across the globe, and ensured that chemistry is used only for peaceful purposes 🕊️
Today we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the #ChemicalWeaponsConvention entry into force 👏. 🇨🇦 has been a committed member of the #CWC since the start and is proud to be one of its 193 signatories. Together with the @OPCW we work to keep our 🌍 safe from #ChemicalWeapons. https://twitter.com/OPCW/status/1519919476699017216
#FlashBackFriday to 1997 when the #ChemicalWeaponsConvention entered into force. 25 years and 193 signatures later, it’s the most successful #disarmament treaty in history with 98% of the world’s population living under its protection 🌍
Today marks 25 years since entry into force of the Chemical Weapons Convention.

@JezLittlewood @bwiedwards @Christo57478838 @gregkoblentz Let's put all these proposals together.
@JezLittlewood @bwiedwards @Christo57478838 Many proposals to strengthen CBW nonproliferations have been advanced by experts and scholars. For instance, @gregkoblentz and I have laid out a proposal to widen the coverage of novichok agents and precursors in CW-control lists.

#OPCW is #hiring inspectors! The job of an OPCW inspector is challenging, but also highly rewarding. To get a better look into the life of an OPCW inspector, we sat down with two inspectors to find out what makes their job exciting and unique.

To continue to be effective, a new #SciencePolicyForum argues that the Chemical Weapons Convention and its implementing body must adapt to the future chemical weapons threat, shifting focus from disarmament to preventing reemergence. https://fcld.ly/gmmn05g
