Three I’s: Research Integrity & Biosecurity Conference 2020

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: Research Integrity & Biosecurity™ — Promoting Research, Integrity and Compliance by Providing Training in the Ethical and Responsible Conduct of Research conference is the first and only event designed to address the needs and concerns of security professionals, IACUCs, IBCs and IRBs.

Collaboration is key to being at the forefront of our industry, which is why we are once again proud to present the Three I’s: Research Integrity & Biosecurity conference.

Through our collaborative efforts, conference attendees will benefit from the combined skills and knowledge represented in MSMR, NCABR, MeRTEC and the FBI to increase their understanding of all that is involved in the vital issues facing the life science community.

We are committed to delivering an outstanding educational and training opportunity, as well as providing an interactive, interdisciplinary learning and networking platform that has been our signature approach for 19 years.

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