Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)

Safety in Science: Biological Registration

BioRAFT Biological Registration Module

The Biosafety Office and Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) are committed to keeping safety an essential element in your laboratory research. To this end, we are jointly rolling out the new Biological Registration module within the BioRAFT online platform. This system comprehensively tracks all biological research at the University and registers protocols for review by the IBC committee in one location. 

As of September 1, 2021, the IBC requires that all non-clinical researchers register their IBC-related work in Bioraft. The Biosafety office requires all labs conducting biological research to submit a registration summarizing the nature of their work. 

Please contact or for system access issues and support.
