CU-IBCInstitutional Biosafety Committee formerly the Recombinant DNA Committee

Frank Cantone, Interim IBC Chair

Cornell University Biological Safety Officer

Maria Golonski, Executive Secretary

slide2

What does the IBC do?

Review all University research and teaching activities involving the use of REGULATED biological agents, toxins, and recombinant DNA molecules.

Ensure that personnel and facilities are in compliance with all external regulations and applicable University policies.

Recommend policies to guide principal investigators and EH&S in carrying out the University's Biosafety Program, i.e., acquisition, use, training, transfer, storage, disposal, and emergency response procedures for all biohazardous materials emphasizing the protection of personnel, the general public, and the environment.

Safety - Containment - Training

slide5
Recombinant DNA – NIH

CU regulates all rDNA projects, incl. NIH-exempt projects

Infectious Pathogens – CDC, USDA, NIH, ABSAHuman, Animal, Plant

Biological Toxins -CDC

All research projects involving regulated biohazardous materials must be registered with the CU-IBC via a MUA (Memorandum of Understanding and Agreement)

step 1 sps receives form 10
Step 1:SPS Receives Form 10

If rDNA, GMO or Biological Agent, boxes are checked - it triggers an SPS (IBC) response.

PI receives an email indicating that an MUA is required prior to the release of funds. Some agencies require approval when grant is submitted.

slide7

Step 2

Determine need for a MUA

New or Revised

PI will be informed of status of MUA and will be directed to submit a new protocol or an ammendment

Information, Instructions, and Forms are on the website

http://www.ibc.research.cornell.edu

This should be consulted prior to submitting a Form 10 and any MUA forms.

step 3 pi completes forms
Step 3:PI Completes Forms

Proper forms must be completed in full

Electronic submission is here!!

Questions regarding the forms can be directed to Maria Golonski (mg352) at 255-7219 or Frank Cantone (fac2) at 254-4888

step 4 committee review
Step 4: Committee Review

Committee Chair and Biological Safety Officer review all MUAs

Exempt projects are approved by the chair

Non-exempt projects are assigned to a 3 person subcommittee for review

Subcommittee reports on review and recommends project for approval

Provisional approval may be granted at that time

Funding cannot be released prior to this

step 5 ibc meetings
Step 5:IBC Meetings

The IBC meets the third Thursday of even months

All meetings are open to the public – announced in the Ithaca Journal and Cornell Daily Sun

At the meetings, all non-exempt proposals with completed subcommittee reviews are discussed and voted upon

mua lifetime
MUA Lifetime

All MUAs are good for 3 years from the date it was approved, HOWEVER…..

Each year an annual questionnaireis required.

A full review by the IBC is required every third year on all proposals

slide12

Compliance Issues

  • Reminders to submit the Annual Updates is emailed to PI at:
  • 2 months prior to due date –
  • 1 month prior to due date -
  • 2 week prior to due date
  • 1 week prior to due date - Every 7 days thereafter
  • cc Dept Chair
  • If annual update is not submitted the project is out of compliance. This will generate a notice to the PI, Dept. Chair, Dean and VP, and will initiate The Dreaded Sanctions.
        • Freezing Dept, College, University accounts
        • Restricting Research Activities
        • Closing the Laboratory
slide13

REMEMBER

All Research involving rDNA and biohazardous materials,

sponsored or not,

is subject to all the compliance issues just discussed.

Compliance is the responsibility of the PI, but the Dept. Chair/Head has an obligation to ensure all PIs are aware of the rules.
