The TAMU Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) maintains management and oversight for research compliance areas with regard to the use of human blood, human tissue, human cells, recombinant DNA, pathogens (plant, animal, human) and/or biological toxins. Any research involving the above areas requires registration with the IBC. To determine if you need IBC approval, please email the Office of Biosafety, or via telephone at 979-862-4549.
The New PI Checklist for Work with Biohazard and Recombinant DNA is especially helpful to new investigators but should be reviewed by all individuals working with biohazards or recombinant DNA in research laboratories.
Please go to the TAMU Office of Research Compliance and Biosafety for more information.
