Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"Biological Safety: Principles and Practices has long been recognized as a reliable go-to resource for practical and readily applicable biosafety guidance, one which I've used for more than 20 years. In this new edition, the editors have compiled the essential core basics with the addition of current timely topics relevant to today's biosafety professionals and biological scientists. This book will be a valuable resource for both new and experienced individuals in this field."

-- Julie A. Johnson, PhD, CBSP, Assistant Vice President for Research Compliance and Biosecurity Research Institute Biosafety Officer, Kansas State University

"There is little doubt that there is a considerable demand for this material... I can envision it will be read in its entirety by biohazard specialists, but be of use to a much broader panel of professionals, including physicians, microbiologists, veterinarians, and industrial hygienists, both in the U.S. and abroad."

-- J. Thomas Pierce, MBBS PhD (Navy Environmental Health Center) Doody's Review - previous edition


The editors indicate that it should be used as a resource by biosafety professionals, those who teach, and those who work with pathogenic agents in research, production, and teaching.
