Representation of PBSA in 13th A-PBA Conference August 28-31 2018

Dr. Shamsul Arfin Qasmi represented PBSA in the 13th A-PBA Biosafety Conference. Around 700 participants from 21 different countries participated in the event.

Dr. Qasmi was asked multiple questions especially from countries who are in the initial stages of developing their Biosafety programs. Srilanka, Bangladesh, and Philippines showed keen interest in protocols developed for the same. The western audience (CDC, Haztec, Elizabeth R. Griffin Program, GW GHSA platform, Temasek Life Sciences laboratory, China CDC etc.) also liked the presentation and appreciated the efforts of PBSA on National level in collaboration with FIC/NIH USA.

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.
