Medical, Biomedical & Biodefense: Support to the Warfighter Symposium

June 5, 2019 - June 6, 2019

Panelists members include Kevin Outterson, Executive Director of CARB-X, on the “Public-Private Partnerships: Research and Development Consortia and Accelerators” panel.

This panel will discuss the use of public-private partnerships as models for stimulating innovation through sponsored research and development. The panelists will provide overviews of several partnership-enabled consortia and accelerators, including BARDA’s new Division of Research, Innovation, and Ventures and their participation in the partnership, Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria, and, as well as DoD’s Medical CBRN Defense Consortium and Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium. Presenters will discuss their organization’s background and structure, as well as their unique mechanisms for engaging the research community to solve significant public health and biomedical challenges.

The Symposium will focus on two separate tracts. The first, “Medical Support to the Warfighter,” will connect businesses and university researchers with military and other federal agencies that require or purchase medical supplies, equipment, devices, pharmaceuticals, information technology and services, or fund medical-related research and development.

The second tract, “Biomedical and Biodefense Support to the Warfighter,” will focus on establishing dialogue between industry and academia-based technology innovators and military and government officials to address the future biomedical and biodefense needs of the military and our nation.
