Pre conference course E - Basics in Biosecurity

Instructors
Kathrin Summermatter and Douwe Kuperus

Course description
Biosecurity impacts all biosafety professionals to varying degrees. As biosafety professionals we also have to give guidance and advise on biosecurity issues. How can one determine the potential for misuse within a laboratory setting? What biosecurity measures help preventing misuse? What elements need to be considered in a biosecurity concept? 

It is a basic course for biosafety officers, biosafety professionals and other interested persons who also have biosecurity responsibilities. This course will provide participants with an overview about the main elements of a biosecurity program and concrete examples from practice covering the veterinary as well as the human side. 

Learning outcomes
Participants will know and understand the basic principles of biosecurity, the distinction and overlap between biosafety and biosecurity and what elements need to be considered in a biosecurity manual. 

Participants are asked to bring their own examples to be discussed during the course.
