BU Guidelines on Research with Potential Pandemic Pathogen Oversight Published

In March 2023, the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB), a Federal advisory committee that addresses issues related to biosecurity and dual use research, provided recommendations for the development of a more comprehensive and integrated framework for the oversight of research with pathogens and toxins that may pose significant biosafety or biosecurity risks, also known as Potential Pandemic Pathogens (P3CO). Boston University’s (BU) Institutional Biosafety Committee, in concert with Research Compliance, has developed and implemented guidelines for this research ahead of revisions to the current federal policies being proposed in 2023.
