The Mid-Atlantic Biological Safety Association (MABSA) is a not-for-profit, multi-disciplinary professional organization founded in 1990 for the purpose of promoting the principles of Biological Safety.

MABSA was founded to provide a professional forum for dissemination of information between individuals in this and related fields; to inform the public about the value of biological agents in research and health care, and the role they play in disease as well as in the improvement of the quality of life; to identify new biologically hazardous agents and to determine guidelines for their safe use; to promote the recognition of Biosafety as a scientific discipline.

MABSA provides a regional forum for members to interact and share information on biosafety subjects, such as new guidelines or current concerns with newly recognized agents and with new uses for new agents.
A biosafety topic of interest is presented at each of several dinner meetings held throughout the year. A day long symposium, hosted by a member, is held in the spring.

Many MABSA members are also members of the American Biological Safety Association (ABSA); our associations have mutual goals. In order to encourage maximum regional participation, MABSA membership does not require membership in ABSA. 


Want to promote your corporate brand or association identity instantly to the biosafety community?

MABSA now offers companies and associations an opportunity to increase their visibility by making their organization logo visible to our visitors every day. As a sponsor, your company's or association logo will appear prominently on the Sponsor page of our website.
