2024 Harvard Yale IBC Biosafety Symposium (April 23-24, 2024)

2024 Harvard Yale IBC Biosafety Symposium (April 23-24, 2024)

This year’s event will focus on high-risk biohazardous research. The coordinated theme will involve keynote and related presentations on where we are nationally and where we are headed.
Our Employee Health/Emergency Management Roundtable will leave ample time for your questions and all attendees will receive a comprehensive sample Occupational Health plan to use as a template for developing their own plans for high risk biohazardous research at their institutions.
We’ll also feature a first of its kind “live” IBC meeting where all attendees are voting members, where you will gain direct experience in the review of high-risk research protocols. All attendees are voting members of this live IBC Committee.
The event will conclude with recent survey information on how US institutions are addressing the review of high-risk research protocols.
Please join us April 23-24, 2024 either virtually or on the campus of Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.
