"The Project BioShield Act of 2004 (P.L. 108-276), also referred to as 'Project BioShield' or 'the Act,' was enacted on July 21,2004. This is the first Annual Report to Congress regarding Project BioShield and covers the two-year period from enactment of the Act through July 2006. Future reports will cover activities occurring within each one-year period (July to July). The Act is a critical part of a broader strategy to defend America against weapons of mass destruction."
