Pre-congress Workshops, April 6 @ 10:00


The role of vaccines in preventing outbreaks, through natural causes or biothreatsIt only takes natural outbreaks and bioterrorism attacks like the Ebola and anthrax to highlight the danger and fragile balance we live in. To ensure global and international security, important decisions need to be made in stockpiling and prioritizing research efforts, however there is a lack of vaccine manufacturers producing these countermeasure treatments. Participate in this workshop to understand the rationale for developers to produce these lower commercial interest vaccines, and the challenges/opportunities associated in working with the government.
  • NIAID’s gap filling preclinical services for vaccine development
  • Expanding the utility of biodefense vaccines
  • Biodefense and Pandemic Preparedness:Two sides of the same coin?
  • Update on the broadly neutralizing influenza monoclonal antibody used for the DARPA-funded Pandemic Preparedness Platform (P3) initiative
  • A disruptive, transportable mRNA vaccine manufacturing platform that can rapidly combat multiple diseases
