Regulations & Policies

The IBC is an institutional committee created under the NIH Guidelines to review research involving recombinant DNA and synthetic nucleic acid research. The IBC also reviews all research involving biohazardous materials and has overall oversight and responsibility for the Biosafety Program at BU and BMC.

Please note that if you are performing this type of work without IBC approval, you (and as a result, the institution) are out of compliance with current NIH and local regulations.
