The Institutional Biosafety Committee, or IBC, is the ISU committee that reviews protocols for experiments using rDNA, human cell lines and biohazards.
All research conducted at Idaho State University involving rDNA molecules must meet with current NIH Guidelines.
For detailed instructions and assistance, please contact IBC Chair James Groome at (208) 282-2791.
CITI Training may be required.
