Obtaining IBC Approval
Principal Investigators using biohazardous materials or conducting
experiments involving recombinant DNA in their laboratories must obtain approval from the IBC. To initiate this process,
the investigator must complete a
Biological Use Authorization (BUA)
Form. The BUA may be reviewed and approved by the Institutional Biosafety Officer (IBO) for BSL-1 experiments.
The IBO and the IBC will review research involving BSL-2 or BSL-3 experiments.
