Three I’s: Research Integrity & Biosecurity Conference

3Is 2018

The Three I’s planning team is committed to providing a high-quality professional development experience for all attendees. Due to the current health recommendations, The Three I’s conference will be provided as a fully virtual event in September and will not be held in person. Please note that in order to accommodate all participants nationwide, the conference now will run Monday, September 14, 2020, through Friday, September 18, 2020, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. (EST) each day. The daily agendas are listed below and on the conference app. The conference app is available only to those who are registered and is the way attendees will access the conference sessions.

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.

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 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.
