The NPHL has established a Listserv to enhance laboratory communications. The NPHL Listserv will serve as a means by which laboratorians can join and participate in the exchange of ideas and information about general laboratory issues, to ask questions, and to share best practice methods as well as discuss laboratory problems.

The Center for Biopreparedness Education
Founded in 2002, The Center for Biopreparedness Education meets Nebraska’s need for biopreparedness education, training and resources.
In response to federal and state initiatives to establish and improve the public health system’s response to biological events, Nebraska Health and Human Services commissioned the state’s two medical schools – University of Nebraska Medical Center and Creighton University Medical Center – to join forces to form The Center for Biopreparedness Education, which is under the direction of the Chiefs of the Infectious Disease Departments at both medical centers and a multi agency consortium.
In addition to providing training and presentations, The Center for Biopreparedness Education houses the nation’s only free standing library devoted exclusively to information on chemical, biological, nuclear/radiological, and explosive events.
