2018 ASM Biothreats Final Program

Past Meeting Materials




What’s new in high consequence pathogen research, biological threat reduction, product development and policy will be the focus of the 2019 ASM Biothreats meeting, January 29–31, 2019, in Arlington, Virginia at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City. Experts in academia, industry and government present and discuss the latest developments in this emerging field. 

A highlight of this meeting is Biothreats Peer-to-Peer, a half-day pre-meeting symposium providing students and early career professionals the unique opportunity to make an oral presentation to a group of their peers. Speakers from the full Biothreats program have been invited to discuss their careers and job opportunities in the field.
