IBBIS - Safeguarding modern bioscience and biotechnology
Safeguarding modern bioscience and biotechnology
so it can advance and flourish safely and responsibly
IBBIS works with global partners
to strengthen biosecurity norms and develop innovative tools to uphold them.
Our work helps reduce the risk
of catastrophic events that could result from deliberate abuse or accidental misuse of bioscience and biotechnology.
Together, we can create a world in which bioscience and biotechnology flourish safely and responsibly
Bioscience and biotechnology advances offer tremendous potential benefits for strengthening public health, combating climate change, and promoting economic development. However, these same innovations also can pose unique challenges and increase risks of accidental misuse or deliberate abuse with potentially catastrophic consequences.
