Biosafety

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) is responsible for reviewing all University research and teaching activities involving the use of biohazards, recombinant DNA molecules, select agents, or bloodborne pathogens whether the activities are carried out on campus or off campus (usually under other Institutional Biosafety Committees).

The IBC will review and authorize for 3 years, research involving: any biological agents, infected animals or tissues (including field work), recombinant DNA, Select Agents & Toxins, and work with human blood, bodily fluids, tissues or cells in culture. Most biological research requires IBC authorization prior to initiation.

In addition the IBC provides oversight for biological agents which might fall under the Dual Use Research of Concern.  

All questions and inquiries can be made at Sandy Berry-Lowe (sberrylo@uccs.edu) 719-255-2552 or Cynthia Norton (cnorton@uccs.edu) at 719-255-3212.
