CReSA has participated in Escolab 2009 with the activity called “Mad cows, bluetongue, avian flu… disease that we are investigating“. A total of 250 students visited the CReSA building, located at the UAB campus.

The students attended a speech and discovered what the CReSA is, the research activities developed at the center and the biosafety measures needed to work in this high biological safety center. They also made a guided visit around the level 2 biosafety laboratories and an outside visit to the level 3 biosafety facilities.
