Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)

IBC Mission:  The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) oversees the safety of research involving recombinant DNA or other biohazardous materials. The IBC sets containment levels in accordance with National Institutes of Health (NIH) Guidelines and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It also periodically reviews previously approved research projects for changes which would necessitate increasing or decreasing containment levels.
