Safety Hazards

Institutional Biosafety Committee

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) reviews and approves all research conducted at Ohio State involving recombinant DNA molecules; biohazards; and microorganisms that are pathogenic to humans, plants, and animals. Working in conjunction with the Office of Environmental Health and Safety, the IBC guides investigators through the acquisition, handling, transfer, and disposal of potentially hazardous or regulated biologic materials.
