Lab Safety Spotlight

After the Research Safety team conducted laboratory inspections during the month of September, our team has selected one lab to be recognized.

EHSO would like to recognize the Dreaden Lab for the September Lab Safety Spotlight.

Congratulations to the members of Dr. Dreaden’s research group for embracing a culture of safety. Keep up the great work!

“Research in the Dreaden Lab focuses on the development of therapeutic technologies for both adults and children with cancer. In particular, their research exploits nanometer-scale materials and engineered polymers as a means to impart non-natural and improved function to cancer therapies and immunotherapies. Current areas of research include light-induced immune modulation, therapeutic T cell redirection, and tumor-targeted drug cocktail formulations.”

Members of the lab selected for the Lab Safety Spotlight will receive a pizza party sponsored by EHSO.

Thank you to all the labs and team members for being proactive and embracing a culture of safety.

We will continue to feature a selected lab every month.

Ways members of research labs can embrace a culture of safety:

  • Maintain your EHSO training to keep it up-to-date
  • Know the biological, chemical properties, or characteristics of the materials that you are using in research
  • Use your PPE according to the lab-specific PPE Assessment
  • Review the safety and lab-specific SOPs before commencing work
  • Clean after you have finished your work
  • Know how to respond to and report an incident or accident
