Institutional Biosafety Committee Protocol Submission

Submitting documentation for review by the IBC is done in connection with various types of research.  Investigators must submit an IBC Registration Form when research is subject to the NIH Guidelines.   

General Submission: 

In order for a project to be reviewed by the IBC, PI's must complete an IBC Registration Form and submit the form to ibc@kumc.edu. This form is a declaration of all activities regarding your project that pertains to rDNA and/or the safety of such procedures. Whenever an addendum is required, PI's must submit an IBC Addendum Form.

All researchers will be required to submit an IBC Post Approval Status Form annually for continued compliance with the NIH. 

Animal Research:

If you are performing animal research, you will be required to submit an Animal Care & Use Protocol (ACUP) to the Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC). Guidance for submitting an ACUP can be found at the KUMC Office of Regulatory Affairs for Bilogical Sciences / IACUC website.  Your protocol will automatically be sent to the IBC for review. If warranted, IBC will request that you complete an IBC Registration Form so that your protocol can be added to the next IBC Agenda and you will be informed as to the decision. 

Human Research:

If you are performing clinical trials or human research, you will be required to submit your protocol to the Institutional Review Board (IRB).  Guidance on submitting applications can be found by visiting the IRB website.  You will also need to complete an IBC Registration Form if Human Gene Transfer Research is being conducted. Please see links above for required forms. Guidance on requirements for supporting documents can be obtained by contacting the IBC at ibc@kumc.edu. If warranted, the IBC will add your protocol to the next IBC Agenda and you will be informed as to the decision. 

Bench-top Research:

If you are performing bench-top research involving rDNA technology, you must submit an IBC Registration Form to the IBC for review. This form is submitted by emailing ibc@kumc.edu

Lab Audits

Investigators must be prepared to have a laboratory inspection or audit performed if deemed necessary per the NIH and other regulating authorities. The audits are designed to not disrupt research and are considered a vital aspect of regulation adherence.
