The Biorisk Management (BRM) is a relatively new domain in biomedical sciences and biotechnology. It provides the strategic framework for action for the laboratory biosafety and biosecurity (along with bioethics).1-2 In fact, BRM is very vital for the global safety and security. Therefore, the BRM curriculum should be developed and incorporated into biomedical sciences and biotechnology education programmes of every country to prepare next generations to meet the biosafety, biosecurity and bioethics challenges.
