‘Safety by Design’ Symposium Set, May 22-24

The Office of Research Services’ Division of Occupational Health and Safety will hold its third symposium in a series promoting a culture of safe and responsible science in the conduct of biomedical research. “Safety by Design – Microbial Inactivation – Lessons Learned and a Path Forward” is scheduled for May 22-24 in Natcher Conference Center.

Presenters include researchers and other experts in inactivation who will discuss the science behind microbial inactivation, review past missteps, identify challenges affecting inactivation such as gaps in scientific knowledge and limited guidance and examine strategies for moving forward. The event offers formal presentations and opportunities to network, exchange ideas, work in small groups and learn.
