Biological Safety

The biological safety program facilitates regulatory compliance for principal investigators conducting research with potentially infectious materials, toxins and certain recombinant DNA strategies. The campus biosafety officer oversees the program and coordinates the activities of the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC).

The biosafety officer provides monthly training on biological containment practices, assistance to PIs registering their projects with the IBC, guidance on safe handling of biological materials, biological waste disposal and decontamination procedures.
