BARDA is pleased to announce the presenters for 2020 BARDA Industry Day Lightning Talks. We are in our third year of hosting Lighting Talks, as a means to incorporate our stakeholders into the Industry Day program and help companies network among our audience of top industry experts, government partners and BARDA team.
We were thrilled by the response to this year’s open call for submissions. Over 336 submissions were received, making the choices to narrow down our top presenters very challenging! After a careful review of the submissions, twenty were chosen to highlight their innovations. It was not an easy decision as many of the submissions were outstanding.
On October 27th, there will be two concurrent pre-recorded afternoon Lightning Talk Sessions. One focused on diagnostics and medical devices, and the other focused on vaccines and therapeutics.
Please find below the list of selected presenters for this year’s Lightning Talk sessions.
