      Laboratory science is a risky business – but much of that risk can be mitigated. By communicating the best information to the correct people at the right time, a lab’s design can go a long way in enhancing its operations. Drawing from his experience with a recent construction project, Matt Anderson, a University Biosafety Officer, will share what worked and what did not at the University of Nebraska’s Veterinary Diagnostic Center. Brian Garrett, Product Manager at Labconco, will present the equipment vendor’s perspective. He will discuss the importance of good communication and selecting equipment that functions for today and tomorrow’s needs.

      Learning Objectives:

      1. Develop a deeper understanding of what makes a lab safe
      2. Be able to identify and avoid traps in lab design and renovations
      3. Apply concepts in flexibility to overcome lab design hurdles
