Biosafety Portal

Welcome to the Biosafety Portal

Welcome to the Environmental Health and Safety Biosafety Portal. This site was designed to link many areas under the biosafety discipline in an effort to facilitate research and compliance with constantly changing regulatory requirements. In addition, this site will provide numerous resources that pertain to the field of biosafety.


Biosafety encompasses many different areas of study including but not limited to:

  • Biologics
  • Recombinant DNA (rDNA),
  • Select Agents; and
  • Infectious Agents

Tasked with monitoring this research, the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) was developed to serve as a regulatory body on campus, responsible for reviewing research protocols to ensure and impose safety requirements. To learn more about the IBC or get more information regarding submission procedures or IBC requirements, please visit the IBC Page.
