ABOUT THE INSTITUTIONAL BIOSAFETY COMMITTEE (IBC)

The Howard University Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) reviews all institutional research activities involving the use of biohazardous agents, recombinant DNA (rDNA) molecules, cell lines, and human tissue including stem cells, viruses, vectors,  and any agent that requires approval for biosafety activities as described in current governmental regulatory requirements.  Howard University IBC approval is required before research can begin involving any of the previously mentioned substances.  

The IBC ensures that all persons, procedures, and facilities engaged in these activities meet the highest standards of laboratory safety and research efficacy in the interest of protecting the environment and the public.

The ORRC staff is available to assist committee members, faculty, staff, and students. Please call (202) 865-8597 or email ORRC (send to: theorrc@howard.edu) for more information.
