    biosafety photo.jpgThe Department of Microbiology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center maintains a state-of-the-art Biosafety Level 3 (BSL3) laboratory for research with micro-organisms that can cause serious or lethal diseases.

    The BSL3 laboratory has special engineering and design features to prevent release of hazardous microbes. Personnel working in the BSL3 lab wear protective clothing and use equipment with physical containment devices. This facility supports ongoing research on Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

    Students who develop skills in the BSL3 lab should find this experience valuable for research careers in academics or the biotechnology industry.
