Improving Epidemic Response: Building Bridges Between the US and China was held in Washington, DC, on May 15, 2012. Hosted by the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC, this conference brought together leaders from China and the US who represent federal government, city and county governments, research organizations, industry, think tanks, and academia. The meeting provided a forum to increase mutual understanding of US and Chinese strategies for responding to major disease epidemics. It was also a venue for leaders, scientists, and officials from both countries to present their approaches to disease outbreak response and to consider effective practices and the potential for future collaborations in epidemic preparedness and response. Distinguished speakers and panelists explored a range of topics, from surveillance and sequencing, to medicine and vaccine development, to lessons from natural disasters, to partnerships between the respective federal agencies, to epidemic response in large cities.
