Review IBC Training Requirements

General biosafety training is required by all individuals conducting research involving recombinant DNA and other biohazardous materials.

The NIH Guidelines state that it is the responsibility of the institution "to ensure appropriate training for  . . . Principal Investigators and laboratory staff regarding safety and implementation of the NIH Guidelines" (Section IV-B-1-h).

CITI Training Program

All new and three-year renewal protocols are subject to the CITI training requirements that are specified in the IBC Application. Completing this training is necessary to request authorization for research requiring recombinant methodologies or infectious agents or procedures that require biosafety level precautions and containment at level 2 or above 1 (BSL-2 or BSL-3).

BSO Audit and Training Responsibilities

The Biosafety Officer (BSO) will provide one-on-one training upon request, and as part of annual laboratory audits and of reporting on such audits.
