Mark your calendars for August 2-4, for the 17th Annual MABioN Biosafety Symposium in Louisville, Kentucky and hosted by the University of Louisville. At this time, we are planning for an in-person meeting, but we are also planning to offer live streaming of the event for those that cannot attend in person. This will allow…

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.
