Three I’s: Biosecurity & Research Integrity 2022

The Three I’s planning team is committed to providing a high-quality professional development experience for all attendees. The 2022 Three I’s (IACUC, IBC, & IRB): Biosecurity & Research Integrity™ conference will be held Monday, April 25, through Wednesday, April 27, 2022, as a completely virtual event through the use of the WHOVA conference app.

There are dozens of webinars, online workshops, symposiums and conferences out there, but the Massachusetts Society for Medical Research’s The Three I’s (IACUC, IBC & IRB): Biosecurity & Research Integrity™ — Promoting the Responsible Conduct of Research, Partnership, Ethics, Best Practices and the Exploration of Current Trends conference is the first and only event designed to address the needs and concerns of security professionals, IACUCs, IBCs and IRBs.

Conference attendees will benefit from the combined skills and knowledge represented through MSMR, the North Carolina Association for Biomedical Research, the FBI Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate, the Maine Regulatory Training and Ethics Center and recognized industry experts and compliance professionals, which will allow participants to increase their understanding of vital issues facing the life science community.

MSMR and its conference partners are committed to delivering an outstanding educational and training opportunity, as well as providing an interactive, interdisciplinary learning and networking platform that has been its signature approach since the beginning.

The April 2022 conference will be the 24th anniversary of the first Three I’s, where MSMR introduced the value, importance and interconnection of the IACUC, IBC and IRB committees. Today, MSMR and its conference partners are inclusive of ALL research committees and the professionals that are engaged in their day-to-day challenges.

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