Institutional BioSafety Committee


Meeting Schedule and Committee Composition

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) reviews, approves, and oversees all research activities involving:

  1. Recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules, and/or
  2. Human, animal, and plant pathogens (bacteria, virus, yeast, fungus, blood, bodily fluids, tissues, cell lines, prions and parasitic agents etc.) including growth, manipulation and/or other handling and use in vitro or in vivo.

This process provides guidelines that ensure appropriate biosafety procedures, equipment, facilities, and training are adequate in conjunction with the biohazard risk.
