Moroccan Biosafety Association

November 13, 2009

The Moroccan Biosafety Association (MOMSA) or the Association Marocaine de Biosécurité (AMABIOS) was officially approved as a legal entity by the Constitutional General Assembly of Morocco. The Executive Board was formed and is headed by Dr. Khalid Riffi Temsamani from the University Abdelmalek Essâadi. The other nine members of the Board include among others, a biochemist, microbiologist, toxicologist, public health doctor, and a virologist.

MOBSA is also open to accepting associate members and partners from other organizations outside Morocco with similar objectives. It plans to have its fist General Conference in 2010.
