Application and Forms

The University requires that all protocols involving the use of biohazardous material be registered with the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC). Please complete the institutional biosafety committee protocol application form [PDF]  to submit biological research information to the the IBC.

Laboratories working with potentially biohazardous material must maintain a lab specific Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the control of biohazards. The Biosafety SOP Template [PDF] can be modified and submitted for approval with the IBC application.

On an annual basis, Principal Investigators must provide a Biological Inventory Update to ensure that the information the University has on record for each research laboratory is complete and accurate. The biological research information and inventory registration/update form should be used to submit biological research information to the the IBC. By entering your NetID and password, you will have access to any information/inventory you may have previously submitted and have an opportunity to provide updated information.

Modifications to IBC approved protocols may be requested by completing a IBC protocol amendment form [PDF]. Dependent upon the extent of the proposed modification(s), the IBC may request that the PI submit a new application for approval.
