The 2018 ASM Biothreats meeting will be held February 12–14, 2018, in Baltimore, Maryland, with an expanded program to include tracks on high consequence pathogen research, biological threat reduction, product development, and policy. Thought leaders in academia, industry and government will gather to present and discuss the latest developments in this emerging field. 

As the trusted voice of the microbial sciences, the ASM leverages its vast membership base to bring an all-new meeting together on the cutting-edge of biological threats. This year's meeting incorporates a platform for students and early career professionals to share their science and connect with a diverse community of experts.
