Pre-Congress Workshops




Panel discussion
April 14, 10:00 - 5:30


The role of vaccines in preventing outbreaks, through natural causes or biothreats It 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. Workshop leader: Col Matthew Hepburn, Program Manager, DARPA
