As a major research institution, the UW-Madison provides assurances that its sponsored research activities are in compliance with state and federal regulations and guidelines. In this context, the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) reviews research activities involving biologically hazardous materials and/or recombinant DNA molecules/organisms.
The Office of Biological Safety and the IBC monitor and review research through the use of a Biological Safety Protocol. Biosafety Protocols are managed using the online system, ARROW. Many but not all research with biological materials requires oversight and a protocol.
