Institutional Biosafety Committee - IBC


Protocols Identical to Previously Approved Protocols

  • To be considered identical or substantially similar, the project must have the same hypothesis, specific aims and biohazard.

  • The chair alone (or his/her designee from the Committee) reviews and approves actions in this category. 

  • The IBC is required to ensure that all research described in a grant application or proposal is entirely consistent with any corresponding protocol(s) reviewed and approved by the IBC.  

  • Any discrepancies must be resolved prior to the start of the project.  

  • The IBC works with Sponsored Project Administration to establish that an appropriate connection is made between the grant application and the protocol being reviewed.
