The development of bioanalytical devices that are portable, compatible, scalable and reliable is critical to effective biodefense at the point-of -care. In addition, clinical data must be generated and incorporated into the key operational decision-maker networks. Cambridge Healthtech’s 26th International Biodetection Technologies: Point-of-Care for Biodefense will bring together the global industry, academic and government biodefense community to discuss advancements in approaches for optimizing performance of field technologies, translational challenges, regulatory approval of diagnostic tools, and data analysis to enable effective decision-making.

This event follows Cambridge Healthtech’s Biodetection Technologies: Biothreat and Pathogen Detection being held from June 27-28, 2018. Together, these two events will provide three full days of programming around biodetection technologies in both the lab and in the field.

Topics will include but are not limited to:

  • Nucleic Acid Technologies
  • Next-Generation Sequencing
  • Rapid Identification and Characterization
  • Translation of Technology to Field Ready Applications
  • Viral, Bacterial and Fungal Agent Detection
  • DNA and Protein Sensors
  • Advanced Tools at the Point-of-Care
  • Immunosensors
  • Fieldable Technologies and Assays
  • Biochip and BioMEMs Applications
  • Rapid Diagnostics
  • Biosafety and Containment
  • Therapeutics and Vaccines
  • Regulations and Standardization
  • Public Health Preparedness and Policy

Who should attend: Scientific Program Developers, Defense Business Sector, Civil and Environmental Engineers, Defense Analysts Researchers, Government Policy Analysts, Staff Researchers, Preparedness Business Managers, Director of Special Projects, Emergency Managers, Policy Directors, Research Scientists, Science & Technology Managers, Program Managers, Vice President of Strategic Development, Director of CBRNE Programs, Professor of Policy Development, Principal Investigator, Senior Members of the Technical Staff, Senior Manager, Manager of Lab Operations, Lab Director, Director of Emergency Management, Senior Scientist, Plant Pathologist, Physical Scientist, Engagement Manager, Biologist 

If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.  

The deadline for submissions is December 22, 2017.

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality conference program.  Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to manufacturers, product designers, component, equipment and material suppliers, applications engineers and research scientists. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
