One Year Training Programme for UVAS Pattoki Campus Postgraduate Students launched!

Dr. Ali Ahmed Sheikh, PBSA Punjab Co Chapter Head, conducted the first session of the Monthly Lunch Break Training Series titled “General Aspects of Biorisk Management” on May 8 2020. This was an online session in which 22 post-graduates attended. They were given an overall outline of biosafety and biosecurity, as well as systems which they must know in order to work safely in a lab.

Pre & Post Assessments as well as Evaluations were collected using Google Forms.

Overall training session was well appreciated and “EXCELLENT” remarks were obtained from the participants. An e-certificate was also issued to the participants. These participants will be further trained on other aspects of Biorisk Management for next 11 months as this is the year long training program designed for post graduate students of UVAS, Ravi campus, Pattoki.

PBSA applauds the efforts of Dr. Ali Ahmed Sheikh in progressing the cause of biosafety and biosecurity in Pakistan, and we wish him success in his endeavors.

Being elected as the President of Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) is a true honour for me. I believe that promoting awareness, knowledge and understanding of biosafety at the regional and national level is responsibility of each member and trainer of the PBSA. This organization is commended in many of the national and international forums for its preventive training for Risk Assessment and management, that was much needed at the time of COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, it has promoted strong collaborations and affiliations with various Biosafety developmental programs that align with international standards to acknowledge and recognize biosafety as a separate scientific discipline within Pakistan. I strongly agree that “no one is safe until everyone is safe”, and would like to work with the PBSA team to implement this approach as far and wide as possible.
