ASM Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting
Date:1/24/2011

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) will host its 2011 Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting February 6-9, 2011 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.

The purpose of this meeting is to bring together individuals who are carrying out research to defend against the threat of bioterrorism with decision makers shaping the future biodefense research agenda, recognizing that emerging infectious diseases serve as a paradigm for handling the public threat of bioterrorism.

This meeting is intended for scientists, public health researchers and policy makers who need to be informed about the latest scientific developments. The meeting will include a series of keynote addresses by leaders in the field of biodefense and poster sessions presenting up-to-the-minute cutting-edge research on biothreat agents, vaccines, detection and diagnostic procedures, animal and plant pathogens, global surveillance, and other vital topics.

The first day of the conference will feature a Keynote lecture by D.A. Henderson of the Center for Biosecurity of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center entitled "The Eradication of Smallpox: A Continuing Saga."

Other plenary sessions of note include:

  • Emerging Plant Diseases and Agricultural Biodefense
  • Medical Countermeasure Development in the U.S. Government
  • New Interventions and the Challenges of Emerging Infections
