Biosafety

Protocol Termination

If a project is terminated or concluded, the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) requests that the investigator or instructor notify the Office of University Research Compliance. This action will allow the protocol to be assigned to a non-active file. If the investigator or instructor plans to leave the University, he/she should notify the Office of University Research Compliance with a request to terminate the protocol. All correspondence relating to termination of a protocol should be sent in writing to ibc@okstate.edu or via campus mail to 223 Scott Hall.

An investigator or instructor who willfully or negligently violates Federal or State regulations or required guidelines, or Oklahoma State University policies regarding the use of biohazardous materials, including recombinant DNA, may have his/her IBC approval suspended or terminated by the IBC. The IBC has the authority to conduct an inquiry prior to making a final decision regarding suspension or termination of the activities.
