The Medical Biodefense Conference (MBDC) is an international event organised by the Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology and held biannually at the premises of the Medical Academy in Munich.
The primary goal is to bring together scientists, policymakers, public health officials, and other stakeholders in the field of medical biodefence from around the world. It is a platform to share information on strategies and research findings related to medical countermeasures against biological threats. This includes risk management and emergency response planning as well as latest advances in diagnostic tools, vaccines, and therapies for infectious diseases that can be used in a bioterrorist attack or in response to a natural outbreak.
In 2009, the conference welcomed first time experts from all over the world and has since become one of the leading international forums for discussing the latest developments in the field of medical biodefense and promoting global health security.
