Three I’s & Biosecurity Conference 2018

3Is 2018

 

There are dozens of webinars, online workshops, symposiums and conferences out there, but the Massachusetts Society for Medical Research’s Three I’s and Biosecurity™ conference is the first and only event designed to address the needs and concerns of security professionals, IACUCs, IBCs and IRBs.

The Three I’s & Biosecurity™: Promoting the Responsible Conduct of Research, Partnership, Ethics, Best Practices and the Exploration of Current Trends conference will address the complex challenges that touch the IACUC, IBC and IRB communities — issues relating to research integrity, ethics, communications and social media, importing/exporting and much, much more. It’s essential for the collaboration that drives the research community forward, enabling attendees to work smarter, not harder.

What’s more, attendees consistently rank the quality and ease of networking at the intimate Three I’s conference as a primary reason for selecting it over other national conferences each year.

Conference highlights will include:

  • Timely Topics: Dual use, Common Rule revisions, research misconduct, best practices for assessing biothreats, and more
  • Extensive preconference workshop options:
    • ABCs for IACUCs & IBCs: Frameworks for Compliance™ (Half-day workshop)
    • Understanding the Compliance Intersection: A Guide to Understanding Areas of Compliance Beyond the IACUC, IBC and IRB™ (Half-day workshop)
    • IACUC = Implementing Assurance Compliance Understanding and Confidence: A Nuts and Bolts Approach to IACUCS and Animal Care and Use Programs© (Full-day workshop)

MSMR, the North Carolina Association for Biomedical Research, the FBI Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate, and the Maine Regulatory Training and Ethics Center, together with recognized industry experts and compliance professionals, will impart concrete strategies that will allow you to stay ahead of challenging regulatory and security issues. Panels and interactive discussion groups promise to offer a multifaceted learning experience.

The main conference will be held March 15-16. Half-day and full-day preconference workshops will be held March 14.

Each registrant may attend either one half-day workshop, which is included in the price of the main conference registration, or the full-day preconference workshop, which is not included in the price of the main conference and is open to those not attending the main conference. The two preconference half-day workshops are open only to main conference attendees.
