Construction of a Regional Biosafety Training Centre in Jordan

This project developed a regional biorisk management and molecular diagnostics training center at the Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST). The facility consists of a mock containment laboratory for training scientists, laboratory technicians, and laboratory managers, and includes a functional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. The training center is intended to serve as a model institution, capable of providing training to scientists in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia on a variety of topics related to biorisk management.
