If this is your first time completing the Biosafety in Research Labs (BRL) Training, you must attend an Instructor-Led (in-class) Training. The Tufts Biosafety Office offers this training on all campuses throughout the year. We encourage you to identify any of your department staff that may need this training and see to it that they attend an upcoming session.
