CDC raises concerns following inspection at UH lab

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The University of Hawaii's medical school has until Friday to address concerns raised about readiness at its biosafety lab.

Hawaii News Now reports the Centers for Disease Control has threatened to suspend the medical school's ability to conduct research on highly contagious diseases after an inspection earlier this year.

The inspection found 30 safety infractions, and said infighting among staffers at the Hawaii lab has undermined its readiness in case of a bioterror attack.

The inspection conducted in March also found that UH failed to implement many new safety regulations that were put into place a year ago.

University officials say they will respond by the Friday deadline, and are addressing concerns. The results were released May 12.
