Institutional Biosafety concerns the use of recombinant DNA technology (rDNA) and organisms and viruses containing rDNA (transgenic organisms). All research utilizing rDNA must be registered with the ORC. Marquette University's Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) is tasked with reviewing all rDNA research conducted at or sponsored by Marquette for compliance with the NIH Guidelines.
PLEASE NOTE: The Institutional Biosafety Committee ultimately determines the correct biosafety level for each project. Therefore, all investigators must submit the IBC registration form (Word) even if they believe their project is exempt.
