Recently, HSP’s Director of Scientific Programs and Engagement, Dr. Prasad Kuduvalli, was invited to speak at IPB University’s international webinar on biosafety, biosecurity, and responsible conduct in science. During the webinar, which occurred on December 20th, 2020, Dr. Kuduvalli discussed how cutting-edge research at universities is integral to growing the bio-economy and how institutional oversight mechanisms should be put in place, to protect this research from misuse or exploitation by bad actors.

As a top-five university in Indonesia, IPB University is a leader in strengthening institutional oversight of their research, as well as creating a responsible culture in biosafety and biosecurity.

The webinar also featured presentations from Singaporean and Indonesian experts, who further discussed how to establish a culture of responsible research at the institutional level.
