What is unique and valuable about this opportunity?
Some course faculty serve at the highest level of federal biosafety policy development. The course director is a microbiologist with fifteen-years of continuously funded medical school bench research. The course director also served as professor-level faculty member, administrative biosafety director, and research compliance officer at three medical schools; Medical College of Pennsylvania [Drexel University], Johns Hopkins University, and University of Maryland.

What will the information learned enable the attendee to do better in their job, organization, career?
This course presents biosafety and biosecurity information that can be templated to any research organization.
