By September 10, 2019 No Comments

Emergent BioSolutions is a proud sponsor of FutureFest™ — where kids can spark their imagination and celebrate our collective power to invent the future! This free family festival, one of the DC region’s largest, has it all: Real fun. Real tools. Real skills for the future.

Innovation and future mindset lead the way at Emergent, a Gaithersburg-based multinational biopharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures, and develops a portfolio of products to safeguard the nation from emerging biological and chemical threats, existing and emerging infectious diseases, and opioid overdose.

Founded in 1998, Emergent is one of the nation’s major manufacturers of anthrax vaccine and holds major government contracts to produce and stockpile smallpox vaccine and related treatments. Its Bayview campus in Baltimore is one of only three “Centers of Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing,” as designated by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, to develop biomedical products to support the nation’s emergency preparedness program.

As a FutureFest™ sponsor, Emergent joins KID Museum in inspiring the next generation of creative and compassionate change-makers!

FutureFest™ presented by KID Museum in partnership with Montgomery County and Fund for Montgomery, takes place Sunday, September 15, 12-5pm at Veterans Plaza and the Silver Spring Civic Center — One Veterans Place, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Learn more at: kid-museum.org/futurefest
