4V – Plant Biosafety for Laboratorians, Greenhouse Safety and Support Personnel at Universities, Startup and Agricultural Companies

September 29 - 30, 2021 | 11:30 pm – 04:00 pm (EDT)

 

 

Plant research is the backbone of both genetically modified, disease resistance, and breeding of both academic and biotechnology research. This course will provide participants with an overview of APHIS, BRS, and VS permitting. It will also cover the NIH Guidelines as it relates to environmental release and financial loss. The course will offer a variety of advanced scenarios and interactive exercises that demonstrate the range of biological, genetically modified, and other risks and hazards routinely encountered in the greenhouse, fields and labs supporting plant research. Participants will be guided through strategies for identifying potential hazards, assessing the magnitude and extent of induced risks and cost, and developing effective control measures to protect the safety of workers, plants, and the environment. The course employs “real world” examples to improve understanding of greenhouse and field operations.
