Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,250,000 over two years to the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) to support their work to reduce global catastrophic biological risks. NTI works on several projects in this area; they advocate for governments to prioritize biological risks, advocate against biological weapons development, and develop methods to detect, prevent, and mitigate catastrophic biological events.
