Technological Responses to Biological Threats
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
