Thank You To All Our Speakers, Attendees, Sponsors and Exhibitors For Their Participation and Support!

Wrapping up its 5th year, CHI's Biodefense World Summit brought together leaders from government, academia, and industry for compelling discussions and comprehensive coverage on pathogen detection, point-of-care, biosurveillance, sample prep technologies, and bio recovery. Across three days of programming, attendees networked in the exhibit/poster hall, engaged in panel & roundtable breakout discussions, and heard case studies by members of the biodefense community: from technology providers to policy makers. If you would like to share your feedback or give input for next year's event, contact Craig Wohlers at
