FINAL CALL! Jun 7, 2019 | MABioN Webinar – Observations And Lessons Learned From The Eye Of The Storm

FINAL CALL! Jun 7, 2019 | MABioN Webinar – Observations and Lessons Learned from the Eye of the Storm

FINAL CALL! Jun 7, 2019 | MABioN Webinar - Observations and Lessons Learned from the Eye of the Storm

In fall 2011, two manuscripts, one from Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the other from Dr. Ron Fouchier at the Erasmus Medical Center in The Netherlands, described research resulting in mammalian transmissible H5N1 influenza viruses. This started a cascade of events including two research moratoriums, the creation of two Federal Dual Use Research of Concern Policies being created, a through public debate, and finally a framework for funding agencies to review gain of function (GOF) research for potential funding. More recently, the first project, proposed by Dr. Kawaoka, underwent the Health and Human Services Framework review for GOF research and was recommended for funding. This webinar will focus on the observations and lessons learned by Rebecca Moritz, the Responsible Official and the Institutional Contact for DURC at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The focus will be on the evolution of her role beyond biosafety and biosecurity as well as take aways for a more proactive approaches.

Presented by: Rebecca Moritz, MS, CBSP, SM(NRCM) Responsible Official/ Institutional Contact for Dual Use Research

MABioN is proud to offer a webinar discussing

An introduction to the principles of plant pathology

Similar to animals, plants are targeted by a variety of pathogenic organisms. Unlike animals however, fungal infections are the most damaging and contain the must numerous pathogenic species. In addition to fungal infections, plants also suffer extensively from bacteria, viruses, and nematodes. A better understanding of the life cycles, infection cycles, and survival structures of all of these organisms will help promote safe handling, research, and disposal of these highly destructive pathogens.
