Welcome to Munich 24 - 27 April 2018

We have the great pleasure to announce the upcoming 16th Medical Biodefense Conference to be held in Munich, Germany, from 24 to 27 April 2018 and to cordially invite you to join this international event. The meeting will be organized by the Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology supported by the German Society for Military Medicine and Pharmacy (GSMMP/DGWMP). The conference is known for the presence of world-leading scientists, which strongly contributes to its excellent reputation and has attracted 540 participants from 53 countries in 2016.

The Medical Biodefense Conference is unique in its focus on medical aspects of biodefense. It has become a venue for an audience that is highly interested in the latest research findings and products in the areas of diagnostics, treatment and prevention of diseases caused by highly dangerous infectious agents. The 2018 scientific program will feature agent-related topics such as "Vector-borne Diseases", „Biological Toxins“ or „Antiviral Substances“ but also sessions of cross-sectional interest like “Mobile Bio-Reconnaissance” or “Modern Diagnostics and Imaging”.

Please note that with regard to new compliance rules we decided to forego the industrial exhibition this time. Although the waiver of industrial sponsoring has led to an increase of the registration fee we are sure that there will be still an unbeatable value for money.

There are definitely a number of good reasons to attend the Medical Biodefense Conference 2018. We can promise that there will be ample opportunity for establishing contacts with civilian and military researchers from all over the world, and we look forward to seeing you in Munich.
