Early November will be busy! First, BAARN is having their annual meeting in the Boston area on 6 Nov. See below a note from Michael Gilmore with details. If you are in Boston on that day, I highly recommend this meeting as a superb scientific event & networking opportunity.
Second, you can then go from BAARN to BARDA's Industry Days in DC on 7-8 Nov. Here's the registration link for more details. This is an opportunity to learn about BARDA’s strategic goals for FY18 and beyond while networking with members of ASPR, BARDA, AMCG and other government and industry stakeholders. If you are consider US government funding, this is a great way to learn about working with BARDA and its USG partners.
All best wishes, --jr
