Laboratory Biosafety Training Course, 27- 31 March 2017, Milan, Italy

The “Laboratory Biosafety Training Course”, organized by the Chair of Clinical Microbiology (University of Milan) and by the Laboratory of Clinical Microbiology, Virology and Bioemergencies of Luigi Sacco University Hospital of Milan, will be a five-day hands-on training course. The programme offers a first complete analysis of biological risk, and an introduction on biosafety and biosecurity as sets of measures that can help manage biological risk. Then, the course will mainly focus on biosafety measures (facility design and construction, laboratory equipment, Personal Protective Equipment, Good Laboratory Practices, laboratory accidents, biohazardous waste management and regulatory aspects). The second part will offer the participants the opportunity to experiment what they have learned in the theoretical lessons with tailored exercises at our premises (BSL-2, BSL-3 and BSL-4 facilities).

7th Annual International Symposium on Biosecurity and Biosafety: Future trends and solutions

On behalf of the Scientific Committee, I’m pleased to announce the 7th “Annual International Symposium on Biosafety and Biosecurity: Future Trends and Solutions” to be held at Palazzo Greppi, Milan (Italy) from March 22 to 24, 2017.

This International Symposium offers a unique opportunity for biosafety and biosecurity professionals to discuss issues in the field of biorisk management, biohazardous waste management and other laboratory biosafety and biosecurity issues in light of emerging and re-emerging diseases in the World. According to the Scientific Committee, the new format will be a sort of interactive workshop providing the Experts involved with original and productive sparks. Accordingly, the event is intended to represent a sort of working group/expert meeting among technicians that freely share new ideas and provide practical solutions in the field of biosafety and biosecurity, including on sensitive topics, in a “secure” and private atmosphere.

Recent natural events that can turn into non-natural, invite us to investigate new solutions in biorisk management. In particular, they urge that the need for strengthened collaboration between biosafety and biosecurity professionals is to be addressed.

To achieve these results the Symposium will be organized with limited number of participants. Experts interested in participating are invited to send their CV to the Scientific Secretariat for registration.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Maria Rita Gismondo
President Annual International Symposium
