HARFORD, Md. (AP) — The Army is opening a new chemical defense laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground near Harford.

U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski is joining other officials in a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday for the Dr. Edward J. Poziomek (puh-ZHO'-mak) Advanced Chemistry Laboratory.

She says it's the nation's only facility providing research and development on chemical threats and counter-chemical agents.

The event also includes a showcase of the Army's latest technologies to defend against chemical, biological, radiological, explosive and nuclear threats.
