I now understand the complementary regulations for animal select agents and can apply them as needed. I also have a greater appreciation for the LAI risks and potential reporting solutions.

Symposium Attendee, 2nd International Biosafety & Biocontainment Symposium, 2013

I thought this was time very well spent and one of the best conferences I have attended in a while (it ranks up there with AVMA and USAHA/AAVLD) . The conference was well run and had excellent speakers covering timely and important topics. The sessions were very helpful for the work I do. Thank you!

Symposium Attendee, 4th International Biosafety & Biocontainment Symposium, 2017

This was one of the best symposiums I have ever attended!

Symposium Attendee, 4th International Biosafety & Biocontainment Symposium, 2017

I was very pleased with the entire symposium! The topics were relevant and I learned much that I will apply in my own risk assessments and evaluations.

Symposium Attendee, 2nd International Biosafety & Biocontainment Symposium, 2013

Outstanding symposium! This is the best conference I have attended recently. Good topics and a perfect size for networking to occur.
