Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) in collaboration with Fogarty International Center (FIC), National Institute of Health (NIH) in US, conducted a workshop on the Responsible Conduct in the Life Sciences (RCLS). This was held in Ramada Hotel, Islamabad on December 6-10 2018.

Dr. Sohail Qureshi, Director CECOS University Peshawar, was the lead facilitator of the workshop. The workshop was supervised by Tim Trevan (Chrome Consulting), who was the lead trainer of the workshop. Participants were taught about the jigsaw method of learning, as well as scenarios to help understand how to evaluate projects based not just on laboratory implications, but other aspects as well.

Participants learnt a significant amount from these workshops, and had positive comments about the workshop.

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.
