Featured Keynote Session

Innovation and Adaptation: Responding to Emerging Infectious Diseases
Dr. Temeri Wilder-Kofie, DVM, DACLAM, NIH
Facility Veterinarian, CW Bill Young Center for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health
Animal research is a dynamic field constantly in flux. With the threat of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, funding restrictions and the demand for highly skilled individuals, it is imperative that animal research professionals stay abreast of new innovations and methodologies in order to effectively respond to ongoing challenges in infectious disease research. Realistically, animal research professionals will have to resort to “thinking outside of the box” and find innovative ways to respond to these challenges with the facilities, tools and equipment already in hand. This presentation will discuss some strategies utilized in the recent Ebola outbreak and draw on some of the speaker’s personal experiences.
