Melissa Battis, the Biology Lab manager for the School of the Sciences, gave a presentation on lab biosafety to biotechnology majors in the BT 205: Biosafety and Quality Assurance class last week. Ms. Battis graduated from Stevenson University in 2011, and went on to secure a position here at Stevenson managing lab safety and training.

The BT 205 course introduces safety and quality control issues related to product development in the biotechnology industry including safety, storage and disposal of hazardous materials, development and implementation of quality assurance programs, and issues related to local, state, and federal regulations.

Her presentation helped introduce these concepts to students and reinforce the importance of lab biosafety in the field of Biotechnology. Thank you for helping to keep Stevenson students safe in the lab Melissa Battis!
