Medical Countermeasures For The Street - Now and the Future

Wednesday, April 17, 2024 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Presented by the Biomedical Advanced Research Development Authority of the US Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response

The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) is part of the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). BARDA provides an integrated, systematic approach to advanced development and purchase of necessary medical countermeasures (MCMs), such as vaccines, drugs, therapies, and diagnostic tools, for public health medical emergencies caused by chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) accidents, incidents, and attacks; pandemic influenza (PI), and emerging infectious diseases (EID). 

This panel is an opportunity for responders to learn about the latest MCM technologies for CBRN threats and for BARDA to engage directly with end users to better understand how we can better support response to CBRN events.
