Medical Biodefense Conference 2013

Scientific program ready for download.

Don´t miss the registration deadline!

Dear Colleague,

It is now only a few weeks until the opening of the Medical Biodefense Conference 2013 in Munich!

More than 200 contributions have been submitted for oral and poster sessions and an interesting program has been compiled under the auspices of our new international Scientific Advisory Committee. Besides the Plenary Session the scientific program will also feature focus sessions on topics of special interest. Internationally renowned experts will give insight into their latest research findings. Of course, Genomics and Metagenomics issues will play a major role, and you will get the latest information on the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, the Anthrax Heroine Outbreak and much more. “Black Death still Alive?” Our focus session on plague will give you the answer. Have you ever heard about “RoBos and MoBos”? Learn more on them on Friday, 25 October. I also recommend the Interactive Case Report and Scenario Workshop, which is another novelty at the Biodefense Conference.

Please also note that for the first time the Conference program features some specially labeled sessions that have been compiled under the responsibility of the German Centre for Infection Research (DZIF) or the Centre for Infection Medicine Munich (ZIMM), respectively. More than 100 posters in our dedicated Poster Session will give you ample opportunity to engage in lively discussions with the presenters. Also get informed about new products and services at the Biodefense 2013 Industrial Exhibition.

Please register NOW if you have not yet done so!

And please be aware that for logistical reasons the number of participants is limited and registration is on a “first-come, first-served” basis.

We look forward to welcoming you in Munich!
