The committee evaluated information from the sponsor, peer-reviewed journal articles provided by committee staff, and presentations by invited guests with expertise relevant to TSE diagnostics (Appendix). The contract for this study, which lasts from May 1, 2002, until September 30, 2003, requests an interim report from IOM on or before January 15, 2003, to help guide the panel evaluating the programmatic merit of prion research proposals submitted to NPRP. This is that report. 17 18 ADVANCING PRION SCIENCE NPRP issued a call for research proposals in August 2002 (DOD, 2002).

DOD asked IOM to provide independent advice on the state of prion science and the field’s most pressing research needs (Box 1-1). In June 2002, IOM formed an 11-member committee supplemented by six consultants who are internationally recognized experts in prion research. The committee members were selected for their expertise in infectious disease, prion molecular biology, microbiology, neurology, epidemiology, blood banking, veterinary medicine, and food safety.
