Research Involving Biohazardous Materials or Recombinant DNA


Research laboratories working with biohazardous agents, microorganisms and/or recombinant DNA technologies are special, often unique, work environments. The materials being used may pose special risks to persons working in or near the laboratory or to the environment should the material escape the containment procedures established for the laboratory. All research and educational activities that involve infection agents, ; plant or animal pathogens, hazardous chemicals, recombinant DNA molecules, microorganisms, human etiologic agents, human tissues or body fluids, or gene therapy must be reviewed and approved by the Winston-Salem State University Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) prior to initiation.
