DTRA CBD S&T Conference 2015

May 12, 2015 - May 14, 2015

The 2015 CBD S&T Conference for Chemical and Biological Defense Science and Technology will take place May 12-14, 2015 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Hosted by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), the event offers a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, interact with elite researchers, and engage with federal agencies involved in Chemical and Biological Defense. The theme of this year’s conference is “Finding Tomorrow’s Solutions in Today’s Environment”.

Through keynote, oral, and poster presentations, the conference will address key areas including:

  • Novel Threat and Disruptive Chemical and Biological Discovery
  • Dynamic Functional Materials
  • Applied Mathematics and Innovative Computational Tools
  • Flexible Design, Synthesis and Manufacturing; and
  • Systems Biology and Engineering
  • Disease Surveillance, Characterization and Point of Need Diagnostics
  • Adaptive Medical Therapeutics and Technologies
  • Rapid Response and Recovery Science and Technology
  • Threat Activity Sensing and Reporting
  • Advances in Chem Bio Defense Technologies
  • Industry Views on Technology Challenges and Needs

Attendees will have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with other researchers concerning the medical and physical sciences related to chemical and biological defense. Attendees will also be able to network with DTRA science and technology managers and other members of the Chem-Bio Technologies team.

The last iteration of the Chemical and Biological Defense Science and Technology (CBD S&T) Conference brought together more than 1,700 attendees, with nearly 200 oral presentations and 700+ posters.
