Application Process

Principles and Concepts

This section defines biosafety concepts including biohazardous materials, virulence, route of entry, viability, infectious dose, concentration, immune status, and biosafety containment levels (BSL1-4 & ABSL1-4) and infectious agent Risk Groups (RG1-4).

Experiment Risk Assessment

The experimental risk assessment involves identifying, evaluating and determining the proper controls and containment of biological hazards.

These resources on biosafety topics are available to guide you in your evaluation of the risks associated with your research activities. Federal, state, and campus compliance information is available on the link below:
