Held immediately following the
Fifth Annual BioMEMS and Nanotech World, August 16-17, 2004


Biodefense research is aimed at understanding the organisms that might be used as agents of bioterrorism and how the human immune system responds to those organisms. This year's biodefense conference will focus on the development of novel integrated hand-held biosensors, single-molecule detection of pathogens, and advances in vaccine therapy against pathogens and emerging infectious diseases. The vast amount of funding in this area promises to benefit human health and ensure preparedness.
