Mission Statement

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) oversees the safety of research and classroom projects involving recombinant DNA or other biohazardous materials. The IBC sets containment levels in accordance with National Institutes of Health Guidelines and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The IBC periodically reviews previously approved research projects for changes which would necessitate increasing or decreasing the containment levels.

Specifically, the IBC evaluates research projects that use recombinant DNA or other biohazardous materials. The IBC coordinates its reviews with University departmental laboratory safety committees and Safety Officers in order to ensure research personnel have adequate occupational health monitoring and training on safe work practices, exposure control emergencies, and the use of protective equipment.
