Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)


New! The Office of Research is pleased to inform you that it is implementing an online chemical and biological safety program to educate researchers and their staff on the risks associated with working in a research laboratory, to enhance the culture of laboratory safety at Rowan University and to be in compliance with several laws and regulations. This is a major change in the way training was conducted before. This change relates to the use of new online, web-based training for research using chemical and biological materials.
