Biosecurity Research Institute

Education and Training Programs

BRI is committed to training the next generation of scientists who will study recurring and emerging infectious diseases.

The mission of the Biosecurity Research Institute (BRI) Training and Education Program is to develop knowledge, skills and abilities through hands-on curriculum for all BRI employees, researchers, and collaborators. Additionally, this education and outreach is extended to external organizations, customized to fit their needs. 

The BRI is one of the few facilities in the nation with a training laboratory containing equipment to simulate research practices and emergency drills. The BRI Education and Training Facility, made up of 10,000 square feet, includes an integrated training suite training classroom connected to the training laboratory, a lecture hall with advanced instructional technologies and connectivity to the research areas, and two conference/meeting rooms. Trainees encounter classroom and experiential learning in the state-of-the-art BRI Education and Training Facility.

The BRI Education and Training Facility was designed with the goal of educating not only in-house employees but also researchers and members of the community. The Facility serves as a training or meeting center for researchers and others in need of space for presentations, meetings, and trainings. The BRI has full-service conference planning capabilities.

Ideal for recording meetings, trainings, and conferences, the BRI Education and Training Facility is equipped to record programs for you to distribute via DVDs, webinars, live streaming, and more. 

The BRI Education and Training Program experts have developed both face-to-face and online trainings. Does your group need training? Contact the BRI Director to learn more about our training opportunities. Experts on staff are also available to design and develop trainings for your biosafety team or maintenance and operations personnel, if needed.

If you have a training need that we can help with, please let the Education Team know. We would be happy to train you and your team.
