Past DSRI Events

Dr. Matt Hepburn is an infectious disease physician who has served in the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps since 1996. He has had a distinguished career in military medicine treating patients and leading innovations to improve the health of those serving in the Department of Defense. With his expertise in operational medicine, research and response, Dr. Hepburn served in the White House and the Pentagon during the H1N1 and Avian Influenza pandemics; helping to develop policy in detection and treatment during outbreaks. During his tenure at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Dr. Hepburn expanded diagnostic and therapeutic countermeasures, including mRNA vaccines delivered during the COVID-19 pandemic and predictive analytical tools for enhanced medical outcomes.  Dr. Hepburn led Operation Warp Speed to hasten the delivery of the COVID-19 vaccines.

On Oct. 1, Dr. Hepburn joined the Office of Science and Technology Policy and will manage the “American Pandemic Preparedness” agenda across the HHS’s various agencies.
