Join us in person in Edmonton, Alberta for Canada’s annual event for biosafety professionals and personnel involved in biosafety and/or biocontainment facilities.

It is the forum for advancing professional development and for building capacity for new solutions to be applied to the emerging challenges in laboratory biosafety and biosecurity.
