(Nasdaq:CBLI) today announced that the Company was invited to present at a
symposium hosted by the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority

Forward" will include select product developers like CBLI, as well as U.S.
government representatives of BARDA, NIAID, the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration, the Department of Defense and the Centers for Disease Control
