Welcome to Munich

Dear Colleagues,

on behalf of the Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology, it is my pleasure to cordially invite you to the 17th Medical Biodefense Conference to be held from 13 to 16 October 2020 in Munich, Germany.

The 2020 scientific program will feature agent-related topics such as „Biothreat Bacteria & Viruses“, or „Bacteriophages“, but will also offer sessions of cross-sectional interest like „Outbreak Response & Management“ or „Novel Diagnostic Platforms“. Further relevant information on the program as well as organizational updates will be continuously published on this website.

As in the years before, the success of this conference is based on the opportunity to establish valuable contacts with civilian and military researchers from all over the world. Presenting biomedical related projects or results and discussing them in a scientific manner is the formula of success of this unique conference format. We therefore kindly invite you to become a part of it by submitting scientific contributions related to the major topics of the conference.

Expand your horizons and come to Munich – a sought-after destination in many ways.

My team and I, we are looking forward to seeing you!!

Kind regards,

Roman Wölfel, MD, PhD, DTMH
Colonel and Institute Director
