HSP Delivers COVID-19 Biosecurity Lecture At International BioRisk Management Workshop

This week, HSP’s own Dr. Prasad Kuduvalli gave a Biosecurity lecture at an International BioRisk Management workshop hosted by the Institute of Tropical Disease, Airlangga University. The virtual workshop focused on how laboratory biorisk management best practices should be implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to reduce the likelihood of lab-acquired infection or potential misuse of the pathogen.

In addition to Dr. Kuduvalli, the event included speakers from many of HSP’s partner organizations, such as the Indonesian National Standardization Agency (BSN), the Indonesian One Health University Network (INDOHUN), and the Indonesian Ministry of Health’s National Institute of Health Research and Development (NIHRD). The event drew 548 attendees from Indonesia and surrounding countries like Thailand and the Philippines.
