Education and Training Programs

The 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. Education and outreach are also extended to external organizations and can be 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. We offer both classroom and experiential learning.

  • Our 10,000-square-foot education and training space contains an integrated training suite training classroom connected to a training laboratory, a lecture hall with advanced instructional technologies and connectivity to the research areas, and two conference/meeting rooms.
