Research Integrity

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) is an ethics review committee. The Biosafety Committee is a requirement of the NIH. At Portland State University, the IBC is responsible for reviewing and approving all research activities involving recombinant DNA and potentially bio-hazardous materials. The committee assures compliance with regulatory requirements and conformance with best practices.
