5th Congress of the Spanish Society of Biosecurity

The 5th Congress of the Association will be held at the Afundación de Pontevedra on September 29, 30 and October 1, 2021.

The field of Biosafety has been revealed throughout history as a field of vital importance for the preservation of the individual and collective health of all populations. Throughout these complicated years 2020 and 2021, we have been able to verify how the advance of globalization contributes to the rapid transmission and dispersal of biological agents, after an outbreak of disease anywhere on the planet. The recent crisis caused by SARS-Cov-2, has forced us to establish guidelines and criteria for biological containment, as well as contingency plans in many areas: hospital, pharmaceutical, researcher, etc … highlighting the importance of sharing valuable knowledge and between professionals responsible for setting standards at different levels. This event is constituted as a magnificent forum to learn and discuss professional and vital experiences in relation to guidelines, techniques and procedures, which will allow a better application of the necessary biosafety measures.

With this objective in mind, a scientific program has been drawn up in which an attempt is made to encompass all the novelties in the field of biosafety and biocontainment, in a unique environment, such as the city of Pontevedra. On the other hand, a pre-congress day with training workshops has been organized on the San Simón island.


Susana Magadán Mompó, member of the Immunology group, is part of the Scientific and Organizing Committees and África González Fernández is part of the Organizing Committee.
