This article discusses the rapidly increasing regulatory burden for life scientists in the United States, and looks at if increased burden resulting from the Select Agent Program has had adverse effects on scientific advances. The authors discuss the regulatory “fit” of the Program and ways in which its design could be improved, including the proposal of developing an international framework convention to address common concerns about biosecurity and biosafety.
