Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel, Arlington, Virginia

Registration Site
The Center for Biofilm Engineering is pleased to announce that registration is open for its annual regulatory meeting, Pathways to Product Development, February 4–5, 2020 in Arlington, Virginia. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a meeting that engages industry, academia, and federal agencies on the impact of biofilm in our daily lives.
Over the past decade, academic research advances and private company R&D efforts have led to the development of innovative anti-biofilm technologies with transformative potential in the consumer products and healthcare arenas. Likewise, advances in methods for studying and assessing biofilms have provided new insights into important biofilm characteristics such as why biofilms are difficult to kill and remove from surfaces.
The CBE is sponsoring this meeting for the seventh consecutive year in an effort to bring together representatives from industry, regulatory agencies, and academia to discuss biofilm-related technologies, research, and regulatory pathways. Presentations will correlate to products regulated by both EPA (surface disinfectants) and FDA (medical devices and implants). Session topics include:
• Perspectives on Biofilms, Regulation, and Research
• Food-related biofilms
• Biofilm Infection
• Oral Biofilm
• Reusable Medical Devices

The two-day meeting will be held February 4-5 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. All events and meals will occur at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel.
