Abstract / Description

This presentation focuses on the role that life science stakeholders can play in addressing the dual-use potential of modern biotechnology, in order to ensure that the life sciences are used only for peaceful, prophylactic, and protective purposes. Education and awareness-raising are important tools for engaging life science stakeholders in public and private sectors with the management of dual-use risks. We report on the development of innovative biological security training resources that use the principles of active learning to sensitise life scientists to the practical application of biological security concepts. The resources include a team-based learning manual that accompanies the guide Preventing Biological Threats: What You Can Do and a concept cartoon series that has been translated into 12 languages.
