With support from the Department of Homeland Security, Drexel University designed and offered a fellowship program in Microbial Risk Assessment for Built Environment (MRABE). The fellowship program integrated 1) academic coursework at Drexel University, 2) research at the Center for Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment, a Drexel-based Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Homeland Security Research Center of Excellence, and 3) two, 6-month professional internships at Homeland Security Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (HS-STEM) sites. Four MRABE Fellows were recruited and trained in this program.
