The goal of the Biological Safety Program is to ensure the safe and proper use of biohazardous materials, such as bacteria, viruses and fungi. This is done by providing training on the proper use of such materials, ensuring that proper personal protective equipment (PPE), safety devices and work practices are used, and that work with biohazards is done in appropriately equipped laboratories. The aim of this program is to allow faculty, staff and students to handle potentially dangerous biological materials without endangering their health and well-being.
