Convening experts from the Center for Disease Control, the US Food and Drug Administration, and representation from government and multiple sectors, the conference will address some of the most critical questions about infectious diseases, the development of vaccines and medicines, outbreak prevention and pandemic preparedness, and technological advances in health.
