Malcolm Dando

Malcolm R. Dando is a Leverhulme Emeritus Fellow in the University of Bradford’s Department of Peace Studies. He trained originally as a biologist and after a period in Operational Research joined the Department of Peace Studies in 1979. He has worked on issues of arms control, first concentrating on nuclear arms control and then, since 1991, increasingly on chemical and biological weapons, arms control, and biosecurity. Dando’s recent research includes how the revolution in the life sciences might open up possibilities for new biological weapons. Dando previously held a Ministry of Defense-funded fellowship in operational research at the University of Sussex. He has published widely on biological warfare, bioterrorism, non-lethal weapons, and related international security issues
