Institutional BioSafety Committee


Meeting Schedule and Committee Composition

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) reviews, approves, and oversees all research activities involving recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules and/or biohazardous material research in human, animal, plant, and laboratory (in vitro) use on the University of Missouri campus. This process provides guidelines that ensure appropriate biosafety procedures, equipment, facilities, and training are adequate in conjunction with the biohazard risk.
