Strengthening the Disaster Resilience of the Academic Biomedical Research Community Book Review:

The academic biomedical research community is a hub of employment, economic productivity, and scientific progress. Academic research institutions are drivers of economic development in their local and state economies and, by extension, the national economy. Beyond the economic input that the academic biomedical research community both receives and provides, it generates knowledge that in turn affects society in myriad ways. The United States has experienced and continues to face the threat of disasters, and, like all entities, the academic biomedical research community can be affected. Recent disasters, from hurricanes to cyber-attacks, and their consequences have shown that the investments of the federal government and of the many other entities that sponsor academic research are not uniformly secure. First and foremost, events that damage biomedical laboratories and the institutions that house them can have impacts on the safety and well-being of humans and research animals. Furthermore, disasters can affect career trajectories, scientific progress, and financial stability at the individual and institutional levels. Strengthening the Disaster Resilience of the Academic Biomedical Research Community offers recommendations and guidance to enhance the disaster resilience of the academic biomedical research community, with a special focus on the potential actions researchers, academic research institutions, and research sponsors can take to mitigate the impact of future disasters.

"This text will provide invaluable insights into a unique and beneficial intervention following crises and disasters: animal-assisted crisis response (AACR).

The purpose of this book is to provide foundational knowledge of AACR and offer valuable, practical applications for various populations and types of crises. Goals of this text include (a) providing best practices and standards for AACR, (b) identifying handler and canine stress and management, (c) offering crisis intervention strategies for AACR with various groups and settings, (d) describing challenges of AACR with natural and human-made crises, and (e) providing lessons learned from AACR responses to several disasters, as crisis cases"--
