National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Opens Registration For 2012 Biosurveillance Conference, Set For August 27-28 in Washington, D.C.
Date:6/19/2012

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) June 18, 2012

National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) has announced that registration is open for the 2012 Biosurveillance Conference, set for August 27-28 at the Washington Court Hotel on Capitol Hill.

The upcoming conference will feature distinguished speakers and subject matter experts to address the current concerns with our nation’s bio-preparedness through the theme: “Creating a National Biosurveillance Strategy: Addressing the Shortfalls and Filling the Gaps.”

With new developments and advancements in biotechnology, the range of biological threats is becoming infinite. Failed attempts to develop an effective national biosurveillance strategy have left the U.S., and its allies, unprepared in a particularly dangerous time.

The biosurveillance community must pull together and take proactive measures to achieve a national biosurveillance strategy, in order to increase our preparedness for and responsiveness to increasing threats.

“The NDIA Biosurveillance Conference will provide a great opportunity to address the many known shortfalls and inadequacies, in the biosurveillance community, preventing us from developing, implementing, and maintaining a national biosurveillance strategy,” says Richard Stouder, Director, Technology Development and Deployment, Global Security Directorate, Oak Ridge National Laboratory. “Attendees will be provided the opportunity to share ideas and explore the vital next steps to achieve the overall goal of standardizing and integrating the biosurveillance community.”

Conference attendees will hear from two of the most well-known and highly respected leaders in the biosurveillance community in the following keynote speeches:

Keynote Address on Shortfalls & Inadequacies of our Current Biosurveillance Systems/Procedures: Ms. Laurie Garrett, Author, Lecturer, Policy Analyst; Senior Fellow for Global Health, Council on Foreign Relations

Keynote Address on the President’s Proposed ‘National Biosurveillance Strategy’: Ms. Heidi Avery, Deputy Assistant to the President for Homeland Security, The White House National Security Staff (Invited)

Other notable speakers will include, but are not limited to:

  •     Dr. Steve Bennett, Director, National Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC)
  •     Mr. Rishab Aiyer Ghosh, Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, Topsy Labs, Inc.
  •     Dr. Jason Paragas, Special Assistant to the Director, Chemical & Biological Technologies Directorate, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)
  •     Dr. C. Nicole Rosenzweig, Research Biologist, Edgewood Chemical Biological Center
  •     Dr. Nathan Wolfe, Founder & CEO, Global Viral Forecasting

In addition to key government biosurveillance labs and entities, this conference will be attended by technology experts, system/concept developers, and health/medical experts and scientists in the biosurveillance community.
