The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) is responsible for reviewing and approving all research involving rDNA and/or infectious agents or toxins. Committee functions are administrated through the Office of Animal Care and Institutional Biosafety (OACIB) within the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.

The goal of the OACIB is to facilitate the protocol writing/review process for the investigator and to ensure compliance of rDNA and infectious agent research with federal regulations. OACIB accepts all protocol submissions, coordinates protocol review, notifies the investigator of the outcome of protocol review and works with investigators during the protocol writing/review process.

Please contact us if you have questions regarding the use of rDNA and/or infectious agents or toxins in research
