In a Nutshell
Effective solutions for preventing the next pandemic are all around us. Matt Hepburn explores the key building blocks required to address pandemic threats.
After retiring from 23 years of service in the United States Army as an infectious diseases physician, Matt Hepburn currently leads an effort for the Department of Defense called Enabling Technologies. Enabling Technologies rapidly develops new vaccines and treatments against future infectious disease challenges. Having dedicated his professional career to addressing the threat of infectious diseases and pandemics, Matt believes this ambitious goal can be accomplished through technology adoption. His deep level understanding for technology adoption for pandemics stems from his six year tenure as a program manager at DARPA. Prior to joining DARPA, Matt served as the Director of Medical Preparedness on the White House National Security Staff. His service in the Army included deployments to Iraq as a hospital Chief Medical Officer and numerous international engagements in establishing public health and clinical research partnerships.
