Do I need IBC approval?

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay requires all faculty, staff, and students engaging in research related to recombinant or synthetic nucleic acids, or other potentially hazardous biologics, to receive IBC training and IBC committee approval of their proposed projects irrespective of the funding source.  Due to the nature of many projects falling under IBC review, researchers may be required to submit projects for simultaneous approval by both the Institutional Review Board (IRB) or the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and the IBC. 

Please click and read through each of these types of research in the table below, and feel free to contact the IBC at with further questions.
