Laboratory Biosafety Training Course 2019
11th – 15th March, 2019
We are really glad to announce the 5th edition of the Laboratory Biosafety Training Course, which will be held from 11th to 15th March 2019, at Luigi Sacco University Hospital, in Milan.
The training course, that will approach biorisk management systems, biosafety and biosecurity, is organized by Prof. Maria Rita Gismondo, Chair of Clinical Microbiology (University of Milan) and Director of Laboratory of Clinical Microbiology, Virology and Bioemergencies.
During the five days training course, international and national lecturers will guide participants through the topic, alternating theoretical lessons and tailored practical exercises within our facilities (BSL-2, BSL-3 and BSL-4).
For the second consecutive year, thanks to the collaboration with the International Federation of Biosafety Association, we will allow host an IFBA examination session for the IFBA Professional Certification (PC) in Biorisk Management. (Please learn more here).
We are also glad to announce that, starting from this edition, it will be possible for those professionals who already own the IFBA Biorisk Management certification, to sit for the advanced certifications in:
- Biological Waste Management
- Biocontainment Facility Design, Operations & Maintenance
- Biosafety Cabinet Selection, Installation and Safe Use
