Potomac Institute for Policy Studies
The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies is pleased to announce that Colonel Martin A. Leppert, USARNG (Ret.) has joined the Institute as a Research Fellow in the Strategy, Planning & Programs group. He currently supports the Engineering Research and Development Center, US Army Corps of Engineers at Fort Belvoir. Colonel Leppert works with the Civil Military Operations – Human Environment Interaction work group as an Afghanistan operational subject matter expert.
Prior to his retirement, Colonel Leppert served as the Special Assistant to the Army National Guard where he planned, coordinated and executed the Afghan Agri-Business Development mission in support of NATO operations in Afghanistan, successfully deploying 21 teams composed of over 1500 National Guard Soldiers and Airmen into Afghanistan to support coalition capacity building efforts in that country.
The Capital Consortium for Neuroscience: Ethical, Legal and Social Issues (CCNELSI), www.ccnelsi.com, was developed by Potomac Institute for Policy Studies Vice President of Academic Programs, Prof. James Giordano, PhD. CCNELSI operates in conjunction with the Institute and its Center for Neurotechnology Studies as a forum for the exploration of emerging issues in neuroscience and accompanying ethical concerns. CCNELSI partners with area academic and research institutions to enrich the intellectual life of the DC and Northern Virginia communities.

Potomac Institute Fellow Ben Sheppard, PhD, is an expert on political and psychological effects of terrorist attacks. In a radio interview on the Jim Bohannon Show, Dr. Sheppard talks about the "homegrown" terrorist risk highlighted by a recent sting operation in the Washington, DC area. That operation led to the arrest of a Virginia man, for allegedly participating in what he thought was a plot to bomb Metro transit stations.
