What We Do

The Biosafety Office works with the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) and the CSU research community to develop and implement appropriate biosafety practices, develop and conduct training programs, monitor and maintain compliance with regulations and guidelines, prevent/ minimize personal, laboratory and environmental exposure to biological materials, conduct laboratory audits, provide guidance on equipment and procedures, develop emergency plans for handling spills and personnel contamination, investigate laboratory incidents involving biological hazards, and report biosafety issues/noncompliance to appropriate CSU personnel and regulatory agencies.
