2019 Medical, Biomedical & Biodefense: Support to the Warfighter Symposium

June 11 (Evening Welcome Social) and June 12 (Symposium Day) The Friday Conference Center, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill


The needs and challenges faced by our warfighters are diverse and numerous, but it is incumbent upon us to provide them with the best medical, biomedical, and biodefense solutions that can be developed. North Carolina’s vibrant life science community can play a critical role in being part of the solution. The Medical, Biomedical & Biodefense: Support to the Warfighter Symposium will provide the opportunity for government, military, academia, and industry to network and learn from each other on the best ways to work together.

Symposium Agenda Highlights

In the opening general session, panel presenters will provide overviews of the overall military medical research, development, and acquisition enterprise and its key components, including:

·     The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (OASD(HA))

·     The Defense Health Agency (DHA)

·     The U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC)

·     The Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP)

·     The Joint Program Committees (JPCs) for DHA-funded biomedical research

Following this general session, the North Carolina Biotechnology Center’s Biomedical and Biodefense

Support to the Warfighter track will feature sessions on:

·     Interagency biodefense research and development (R&D) landscape

·     Mechanisms for engaging the defense and military biomedical R&D community

·     New models for driving innovation through public-private partnerships


Each session will include presentations and panel discussions to foster awareness and dialogue among government, academic, and industry stakeholders in addressing the future biomedical and biodefense technology needs of the military and our nation. View session information.
