The NIH CounterACT program was initiated by the United States government in 2006 to facilitate research aimed at improving therapeutic countermeasures and diagnostic technologies against chemical threat agents. In order to convene NIH CounterACT researchers and other leaders in the chemical defense field, Rutgers University Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers University Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, New York Medical College, and the New York Academy of Sciences hosted the 9th Annual CounterACT Network Research symposium titled, Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats, on June 15–17, 2015. The first of two special issues of Annals, this issue presents 23 papers on various topics discussed at the conference.
