Lightning Talks Selectees

BARDA is pleased to announce the presenters for our 2021 BARDA Industry Day Lightning Talks. These are fast-paced sessions in which some of our outstanding stakeholders present their "elevator" pitches. We are in our fourth 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 230 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.

This year we will be hosting two separate Lightning Talk showcases. The first of which will be held on November 3rd during the afternoon plenary sessions, and the second Lightning Talks showcase will be held on November 4th during the afternoon plenary sessions. As always the Lightning Talk Sessions will focus on innovative diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics, medical devices, and other technologies to help us address public health emergencies.

Please find below the list of selected presenters for this year’s Lightning Talk sessions.
