Past Spring Research Festivals

  • Mayor of the City of Frederick, Michael O'Connor, stated:
    "The Spring Research Festival is an eye-opening opportunity to see and understand the breadth of scientific discovery taking place in connection with Fort Detrick. I am impressed with the attention to maintain both military health and readiness and how those efforts can lead to positive civilian applications for the research. The City of Frederick is fortunate to be home to such an important strategic command."
  • The Tent Show received 1,200 attendees who met with the vendors to view scientific technology.
