Institutional Biosafety Committee

The IBC is vested and charged with reviewing all research activities involving rDNA and other biohazardous agents/materials.

Meeting Schedule

The IBC meets every fourth Monday of the month to review research protocols for projects involving rDNA, infectious agents, select agents, and/or toxins. In order for research projects to be reviewed at the monthly meetings, all proposals must be received at least two weeks prior to the scheduled meeting date. Submissions received after that deadline will not be reviewed that month but will be reviewed by the IBC the following month.
