2ND ANNUAL BIOLOGICAL SAFETY
CONFERENCE 2019

The Nigerian Biological Safety Association (NiBSA) was formed in November 24, 2010 as a multidisciplinary association with headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria. It is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for issue-based debates and discourses of concerns with respect to biosafety and biosecurity. A veritable way of achieving this mandate is creating for cross-fertilization of ideas and sharing knowledge on this subject matter in form of conferences. It is in this light that the organization has called her 2019 conference.
