2018 American Society for Microbiology Biothreats
The 2018 ASM Biothreats meeting will be held February 12–14, 2018, in Baltimore, Maryland, with an expanded program to include tracks on high consequence pathogen research, biological threat reduction, product development, and policy. Thought leaders in academia, industry and government will gather to present and discuss the latest developments in this emerging field.
As the trusted voice of the microbial sciences, the ASM leverages its vast membership base to bring an all-new meeting together on the cutting-edge of biological threats. This year's meeting incorporates a platform for students and early career professionals to share their science and connect with a diverse community of experts.

How Wireless Physiological Monitoring can Strengthen your Animal Model Development and Agent Dosing: A Panel Discussion
In vivo monitoring offers new insights into physiologic endpoints explored when characterizing animal models or evaluating the efficacy of medical countermeasures. Access to this information enables one to possibly identify disease correlates that might predict survival or differences in treatments. During this one-hour session, a panel of experts will join us to share their experiences using wireless physiologic monitoring and its impact on their research.
Advancements in wireless telemetry technology, combined with increasingly sophisticated drug delivery and caging systems, have resulted in the ability to remotely collect continuous data, while limiting subject contact and increasing researcher safety. These benefits, to science and researchers alike, have led to the integration of wireless telemetry technology at infectious disease research institutions including BSL-3 and BSL-4 facilities around the world.
Join us to learn more about wireless in vivo physiologic monitoring and its use in infectious disease research.
About DSI Events
Data Sciences International (DSI) is involved in over 60 events every year. These include scientific meetings such as industry trade shows, courses and seminars, workshops, as well as educational user groups and symposia all over the world.
DSI supported educational events are scientific meetings organized in cooperation with a local institution or society, pharmaceutical company, university, or local telemetry user group. Educational event meetings serve as an educational forum in which researchers can freely share current scientific information with their peers, students, and other interested scientists.
Common to the general theme of the meetings is the data collected through physiological monitoring of freely moving conscious laboratory animals made possible through the use of fully implantable telemetry technology.
Presentations and posters on the latest methods employed by the presenting researchers enable those attending to benefit from the as yet unpublished work of peers. Presentations can be on a wide range of related research topics including surgical implantation methods, data analysis methods, treatment effects of new pharmaceutical compounds, new animal models, behavioral and physiological interactions, basic research on physiological systems, and numerous other whole animal chronic monitoring research topics.
Meetings are held in classroom style with ample time allowed for questions and discussion among the participants. Typical audience sizes run from 40 to 120.
