Dr. Barkley was a principal contributor to several authoritative guidelines in the fields of biological and chemical safety, including the NIH Guidelines for the Laboratory Use of Chemical Carcinogens, the NIH Recombinant DNA Guidelines, and the CDC/NIH publication Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories. He received a bachelor of civil engineering degree from the University of Virginia and master of science and doctoral degrees in environmental health from the University of Minnesota.

Susan Cook is the biological safety officer for Washington University. She received her Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the laboratory of Dr. Diane Griffin, where she studied viral pathogenesis. She then spent a year in the laboratory of Dr. Roy Curtiss III at Washington University in St. Louis studying vaccine design before accepting a biosafety fellowship at the Midwest Regional Center of Excellence, also located at Washington University. In October 2005, she earned the Certified Biological Safety Professional and Specialist Microbiologist in Biological Safety Microbiology certifications. In January 2006, following completion of the fellowship program, she was hired as the associate biological safety officer for Washington University in St. Louis. She became biological safety officer for Washington University on July 1, 2007. In addition, Dr. Cook oversees an NIH-sponsored biosafety postdoctoral fellowship program.

Kenneth P. Fivizzani retired from Nalco Company in 2009, after a 26-year career as a research scientist. He was the Chemical Hygiene Officer for Nalco’s Naperville (IL) and Sugar Land (TX) Research Laboratories for 19 years. He received both B.S. and M.S. degrees
