About the Institutional Biosafety Committee

The IBC is committed to providing a comprehensive and compliant biosafety program for researchers, staff, and students. The IBC is mandated by federal laws and regulations and is responsible for oversight of all activities involving research with microbiological agents, recombinant or synthetic nucleic acids, or toxins of biological origin as well as all BSL-1 work.
