Important 2020 Symposium Announcement

Because it’s now more important than ever, the 16th Annual MABioN Biosafety Symposium will still be held, just not in-person and not August 3-5, 2020 in Ann Arbor, MI. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual Biosafety Symposium will be held remotely through our GoToWebinar platform. You can still participate, present, and attend – and get CM points from ABSA – but you can do it from home or office.
