Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)

·         Protocols for review at the Friday, February 28, 2020, meeting must be received by Friday, February 21, 2020, at 5pm.

·         A reminder for all faculty who use any nucleus acids in their research or classes. Federal guidelines now require that anyone that uses any nucleus acids must register with the Biosafety Committee even if the research is at the BSL-1 level. Initial registration requires the following forms: Registration for the Use of Biological Materials, Registration of Experiments/Activities Involving Nucleic Acids, List of Laboratory Personnel, Researcher Experience Form.

·         All faculty planning to conduct research or classroom activity involving any kind of nucleic acids, including genomes, plasmids, or short nucleic acid sequences, or any potentially bio-hazardous material, including pathogens, biological toxins, or human cells, tissues, organs or fluids must obtain prior approval from the Institutional Biosafety Committee before undertaking that activity. This committee provides federally-mandated oversight of activities that present risk of infection or illness in humans.

·         Please note that research involving viruses or exposure to pathogenic viruses is not allowed at Ithaca College.

·         Faculty who have submitted forms and been approved last year need only to fill out an update form and a new laboratory personnel form.

·         Federal guidelines require that applicants possess prior experience with a particular agent or procedure, and those supervising the activity should be familiar with proper safety precautions, procedures involving storage, and disposal. A link to federal guidelines can be found on the Institutional Biosafety website.

·         Forms and additional information may also be found on the Biosafety website. Please direct submissions and inquiries to biosafety@ithaca.edu.

 

Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)

 

·         Protocols for review at the Friday, March 6, 2020, meeting must be received by Wednesday, February 26, 2020, at 5pm.

·         The IACUC protocol review process is managed through the Mentor IACUC system.

·         All faculty planning to conduct research or classroom activity involving live vertebrate animals for research and/or teaching must obtain prior approval from the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee before undertaking that activity. This committee provides federally-mandated oversight of all activities that have a direct impact on the well-being of animals.

·         If you have questions about animal care and use policies, specific reviews, procedures, or other technical matters, please contact iacuc@ithaca.edu or see https://www.ithaca.edu/sponsored-research/iacuc/
