Training

TRAINING REQUIREMENTS

In accordance with the NIH Guidelines Appendix G, the Principal Investigator is responsible for training all personnel involved in the proposed rDNA project in matters of potential biohazards, relevant biosafety practices, aseptic technique, laboratory emergency procedures, and the biology of the organisms used in the experiment(s).  This site-specific training must be documented by the PI (dates, attendees, topics) and made available to the IBC or Environmental Health & Safety as requested. 

In addition to site-specific training performed by the PI, there may be additional training requirements depending upon the type of research activity.  Training may occur simultaneously with the protocol review process, but final approval of the Protocol Application will not be granted until the training requirements have been met and verified by the IBC.
