University leaders discuss chemical warfare at National World War I Museum and Memorial event

By Jennifer Tidball

One hundred years after World War I, gas and chemical warfare still threaten the modern world. 

Kansas State University President Richard Myers and Ron Trewyn, the university's NBAF liaison, will participate in an important panel discussion of World War I's enduring legacies and the complexities of detecting chemical warfare in the 21st century. Biological warfare will likely be discussed as well. 

The panel discussion, "Protection and detection: Chemical warfare," is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, at the National World War I Museum and Memorial

The discussion will be streamed live at theworldwar.org/live. 

The panel discussion also will include Tom Sack, president and CEO of MRIGlobal. Matthew Naylor, president and CEO of the National World War I Museum and Memorial, will moderate the panel. 

People who want to attend the free event in person must RSVP at theworldwar.org/visit/upcoming-events/protection-and-detection-chemical-warfare. The panel discussion will be in the museum and memorial's J.C. Nichols Auditorium.
