Institutional BioSafety

James Madison University recognizes the importance of conducting a broad spectrum of original problem-solving research which requires the use of recombinant DNA technology.

Cognizant that these activities may be accompanied by some risks, the University requires that the activities by this policy be reviewed and approved by an Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) to ensure that it is conducted in accordance with the National Institutes of Health Guidelines For Research Involving Recombinant DNA Molecules as published in the Federal Register on 7/5/1995.

This policy is in full compliance with the applicable federal and state laws and regulations. In addition, adherence to this policy shall not exempt investigators employing recombinant DNA molecules in their research from compliance with other applicable laws, regulations or policies (e.g. research with human subjects or research with animals).
