Biosafety Program

The objective of the Mercer University Biosafety Program is to expand biosafety technical skills and promote ongoing development of biomedical research work practices to reduce the potential for laboratory-acquired infections and adverse environmental impacts from infectious agents or genetically engineered materials.


The American Biological Safety Association (ABSA) was founded in 1984 to promote biosafety as a scientific discipline and serve the growing needs of biosafety professionals throughout the world. The ABSA is an indispensable resource when investigating biosafety issues.
