LIMR’s Biosafety/rDNA program oversees research involving recombinant DNA, pathogenic organisms, and/or human or non-human primate-derived materials (cell lines, tissues, fluid, etc.). Additionally, the Committee oversees all projects involving infectious agents (RG-2 and 3) and certain toxins that are on the CDC Select agents list.

It is the responsibility of the Investigator to submit the proposed research to the BRDC for approval before the research has begun. A list of meeting dates and deadlines is available (PDF). You may not start your research until your protocol has been reviewed and approved by the IBC. Researchers using any of these materials must complete a Biosafety Protocol Form (DOC). For renewals please complete the Biosafety Renewal Form (DOC), and for additions, revisions or modifications to a current protocol, please complete the Biosafety Addendum Form (DOC). To add or remove personnel from an approved protocol complete the Biosafety Addition/Deletion of Personnel Form (DOC).
