Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)
The Institutional Biosafety Committee is responsible for advising the Vice President for Research on policies pertaining to research, teaching, and service activities that involve biological hazards, specifically hazards associated with the use of recombinant DNA (rDNA) and microbial toxins. The committee recommends standards by which biohazardous activities should be conducted, as well as review projects for compliance with local, state, and federal regulations.
All IBC applications and amendments should be sent to the Biosafety Compliance Officer, firstname.lastname@example.org. Protocol applications need to be submitted by the second Thursday of each month. The IBC meets the third Friday of each month to review all new and renewal applications. Training required for new PI’s and staff can be scheduled with the Biosafety Specialist, Monni Begum, by emailing email@example.com.
The IBC meets the third Friday of each month to review research protocols, assess the adequacy of current containment facilities, establish emergency response actions, and recommend appropriate sanctions for non-compliance.
