Abstract:
Technological Responses to Biological Threats

Program Released for 16th Biodetection Technologies Conference

Boston, MA | Posted on March 4th, 2010

The Knowledge Foundation released today the Program for the 16th Biodetection Technologies conference which will be held at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, VA from June 17-18, 2010.

Biodetection Technologies is an internationally recognized event for experts in detection and identification of biological and chemical threats and will explore the latest R&D developments as well as ready-to-market systems for major biothreat detection, identification, and analysis both in the field and at the point-of-care. More than 140 leading organizations from around the world convened in Baltimore for last year's conference.

This year's keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Michael V. Walter, BioWatch Program Manager at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Dr. Walter will discuss lessons learned from technological problems, the current status of BioWatch Gen-3 sensor-type technologies, and plans for Gen-4 advanced systems.

Other Program topics include:

 Point-of-care applications for pathogen, virus & threat detection & identification
 Technological challenges for rapid, early, specific & sensitive detection
 Role of nanotechnology and system miniaturization - MEMS & bioMEMS
 Use of biochip technology - micro- & nanofluidics
 Bioinformatics for biodefense
 Field-deployable devices: portability/compatibility/reliability/scalability
 Reagentless vs. reagent biodetection systems
 Non-PCR vs. PCR based detection techniques

Distinguished Faculty:

 Elodie Brient-Litzler, PhD, Bertin Technologies
 Caifu Chen, PhD, Life Technologies Corporation
 Douglas B. Chrisey, PhD, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
