|CHI's RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGIES, AND APPLICATIONS IN BIODEFENSE|
|June 04, 2002|
Cambridge Heathtech Institute, McLean, Virginia
November 4-5, 2002
Knowledge and understanding gained through advances in biotechnology can be leveraged in biodefense research to protect humans, animals, and agricultural crops against intentional use of pathogens. This conference will present the latest research and technologies to improve specificity, sensitivity, and speed for detecting, identifying, and characterizing pathogens. It will also address efforts to create novel vaccines and therapeutics, to characterize host cell response and stimulate innate immunity, and to develop effective decontamination methods.
