Press registration open for ASM Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) will host its 2013 Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting February 25-27, 2013 at the Marriott Wardman Park 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.

Highlighted topics include:

  • H5N1: One Year Later
  • Bats As Sources of Emerging Infectious Diseases
  • Emergence of A New Pathogenic Coronavirus: Are We Witnessing the Beginning of Another SARS-like Pandemic, Or Not!

Meeting registration is offered complimentary to reporters covering the event. To obtain Press registration to the meeting, please email Garth Hogan (
