Here are some tips on finding and using ASM Resources onthe website.
The Culture of Responsibility Virtual Workshop raises awareness for biological safety, biosecurity, and the responsible conduct of research. The Biological Safety module poses the question “Is it safe to work in a microbiology lab?” and focuses on breaking the chain of infection. The Biosecurity module goes through each layer of security for all laboratory levels. The final module, the Responsible Conduct of Research, uses cases studies to delve into the dual use dilemma and ask “What is a culture of responsibility?” This workshop was developed by leaders in these fields and includes built-in group discussion and activities for more active learning. Participants walk away with tools to identify, assess, and mitigate hazards for the benefit of science and their community.
