The two-day Toll-Like Receptor (TLR) workshop was co-organized by Dr Nora Chan, lead scientist of the TLR biosensor project, and Mr Albert Chan, Project Director for the Inform Project within the CBRN Defence Program. Biological detection, identification and monitoring (BioDIM) is the top S&T priority for the Directorate of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence (D CBRN D). The TLR biosensor work element within the Inform Project aims at addressing this problem. The purpose of this workshop was to learn about the progress made by the team members so far, and discuss the future ideas. Information presented included work from each of the invited research teams as well as an overview of the current challenges from the lead scientist. The open discussion and face to face meeting format facilitated advancement of the TLR work. The most significant achievement of this two-day workshop was that all participants had an opportunity to learn and understand the results of research conducted by each team in great detail. The outcome of this workshop will lead to faster technological maturation for our sponsor.
