Let's weave biology & technology into the DNA of U.S. national security.

B.Next will demonstrate the power of technologies to identify and quench infectious disease outbreaks.

Why Now?

The convergence of the digital world with biology is creating new opportunities.

Why B.Next?

Uniquely positioned at the intersection of innovation, entrepreneurship, and government, B.Next explores the art of the possible for biodefense.

B.Next, an IQT lab, illuminates the national security implications of infectious disease outbreaks through thought leadership, proof-of-concept experimentation, and informing IQT investment strategy. We are building a trusted network linking government, academia, civil society, and private sector innovators.
