About Centre for Biosecurity Studies, University of the West Indies

The Centre for Biosecurity Studies of The UWI Cave Hill Campus is the first organization in the Caribbean to tackle multidimensional biosecurity issues and thereby, stem the growing vulnerability of countries in the Region to various biological threats, either occurring naturally or through malice.

The Centre for Biosecurity Studies will provide systematic capacity building for biosecurity professionals and those in peripheral services, keeping them informed of changes in the field. It will engage with national leaders on policy formation and analysis, and the rules and regulations necessary for prevention and containment. The Centre for Biosecurity Studies will also be committed to upgrading community awareness and facilitating collaboration between multi-sectorial agents. All of its work will be rooted in a vibrant research agenda. The vision for Centre for Biosecurity Studies is based on the overarching University mission to revitalize and protect Caribbean development.

The mission of the Centre for Biosecurity Studies is to facilitate the reduction of vulnerability to bio-risks in the Caribbean through research, knowledge sharing, capacity building, policy advocacy and a platform for collaboration between key stakeholders.
