Biosafety - IBC


The Biological Safety Committee (BSC) has been established to assist Principal Investigators and the university in meeting the requirements mandated in the NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant DNA (rDNA) and to have oversight of all projects involving rDNA; biohazardous agents (a pathogen capable of replication and a disease causing organism in humans, animals or plants); and human blood, body fluids or tissues. The BSC is also responsible to see that the CDC Select Agents rule is enforced. A Biological Safety Manual has been adopted that outlines the Biosafety program.
