MIP 540 - Biosafety in Research Laboratories

  • 2 credits

Safety and security are an important part of conducting research as well as working with animals or humans who might be infected with pathogenic organisms. Upon completion of this course, students will understand biosafety principles and their applications, including lab practices and research regulations involving working safely with infectious microorganisms and recombinant DNA. Students will apply their knowledge to real-world biosafety scenarios to help reinforce critical biosafety concepts.
