The Biorisk Association of Singapore (BAS) will be organising the Responsible Life Sciences Research Webinar in conjunction with the Launch of the Singapore Biorisk Code of Conduct (COC) for Life Sciences Industry and Professionals on Wednesday 29 June 2022 at 2pm – 5pm Singapore time via Zoom platform. Please join us at this special event!
In the light of emerging technologies that can enable manipulation of genetic material of living organisms, we are wary that some of these may be appropriated for malicious purposes and present a significant threat to public health and safety, despite benefits that may arise from such research. Management of the benefits and the risks of such research thus calls for the work to be conducted in a responsible manner. BAS has been working closely with the MOH Biosafety Branch, Singapore Ministry of Health and the EU CBRN Centres of Excellence Initiative in the last 3 years to develop the Singapore Biorisk Code of Conduct (COC) for Life Sciences Industry and Professionals and we look forward to launching it next month.
We are privileged and honoured to have the following Distinguished Speakers to be part of this Webinar:
