Free WTEC Workshop on Rapid Vaccine Manufacturing

Ramping up production of vaccines offers the best hope of preventing a pandemic of avian flu. To gather new ideas for engineering such improvements, the WTEC expert panel on Rapid Vaccine Manufacturing visited 18 of the top labs in Europe in early March. Earlier they surveyed U.S. R&D in the field with a workshop at NSF. Led by Joe Bielitzky, the panel will present their findings from 8:20AM to 4PM on March 30 in Room 555 at NSF in Arlington, VA. The workshop is free and open to the public, but registration is required for entry into the NSF building. For more information and to register, visit http://wtec.org/vaccmfg/workshop/welcome.html
