The NIH Guidelines require periodic review of your biological research. The NCI-F
Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) currently requires registries to be renewed
and reviewed every 3-years. The renewal process is the same as an initial submission
and it is the responsibility of the PI to incorporate all amendments made to the
initial registry over the 3-year time period into the renewal. As with a new
submission, for renewals, the IBC is responsible for reviewing projects that involve,

Transgenic (Tg) OR Knockout (KO)/In (KI) Animals, Pathogens, Dual Use materials, Nanotechnology.
