February 17 Webinar: Defending Against Bioterror with Improved BioWatch Standards

BioWatch is an important national early-warning system designed to identify the clandestine release of bioweapons into the air. BioWatch uses biomolecular techniques (polymerase chain reaction (PCR)) to detect targeted pathogens. On Wednesday, February 17 from 1:30-2:30 EST, join two of the authors of a recent report from the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for a free interactive webinar to learn how BioWatch has sought to establish performance standards and strengthen how PCR results are interpreted.  Additionally, learn how these improvements will facilitate decision-making by state and local public health and emergency preparedness officials and other end users following detection of a biological incident. 

To attend, visit this link at 1:30pm EST on Wednesday, February 17.
