Biological Safety

Section 1

Institutional Biosafety Committee

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) was created under mandate from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The IBC is responsible for enforcing policies and guidelines related to university-related use of all potentially hazardous biological agents including but not limited to infectious agents, human and non-human primate materials (including established cell lines and stem cells), CDC/USDA select agents and toxins, recombinant or synthetic nucleic acids, clinical trials involving human gene therapy, genetically modified animals and whole plants and animals or animal specimens known to be reservoirs/vectors of zoonotic diseases. The Committee ensures that research involving these agents is conducted in a manner that complies with all applicable regulations, policies and standards and does not endanger the researcher, laboratory worker, human research subject, the public or the environment.
