This week you will be completing the Biosafety lab in Labster. The lab introduces HazMat containment of a powdery envelope and how to work in a Biosafety Level 3 lab to identify the powder. Instead of writing up a lab report for this lab you will be submitting a paper or presentation focused on managing Hazardous Material. After completing the lab, please submit a paper or presentation addressing the following points:
Introduce anthrax, including symptoms associated with exposure and its virulence.
Find an article discussing an incident of anthrax release in public and discuss the procedures taken to contain it, or what should have been done if specific details are not present.
Discuss why scientists work with anthrax in a Biosafety Level 3 Lab.
Review safety procedures for working with anthrax in a Biosafety Level 3 Lab, including laboratory setup, entry and exit procedures, protective gear, and the use of a biosafety cabinet.
Reflect on your experience working in the virtual level 3 lab. Was it cumbersome? Are all the precautions necessary? How important is it to have biosafety labs to identify hazardous microorganisms?
In 2019 the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick, MD was shut down. Research this incident and discuss pros and cons to shutting the facility down. Was USAMRIID important for maintaining and controlling biosafety within the United States? Was the shut down for valid reasons? Is there information missing about the closure? Did politics play a role? End with the current state of the shutdown and what you think, or hope, will happen next.
