Register My Research

Who should register?

If you are an investigator at the NCI at Frederick or Frederick National Laboratory who conducts research with any of the following material, you are required to register your research with the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC):

  • rDNA/RNA
  • Synthetic nucleic acid molecules
  • RNAi
  • Pathogens
  • Oncogenes
  • Biological Toxins
  • Human Material
  • Other Potentially Infectious Material (OPIM)
  • Genetically engineered animals
  • Nanomaterial
  • Material with Dual Use potential

How do I register?

  1. Login to the IBC online registration system and complete each step indicated.
  2. An initial review is then conducted by the IBC Administrator / Biological Safety Officer (BSO) for completeness and biological safety concerns.
  3. Your Registration is then sent to IBC lead reviewers. Their questions are sent to you, allowing you ~ 1 week to respond.
  4. Upon receipt, any updates are redistributed to the lead reviewers. Additional questions may be asked if needed.
  5. IBC reviews and determines if the registry should be approved, conditionally approved or deferred.
  6. You are contacted regarding your status after the IBC meeting.
  7. Upon approval, you will receive and electronic approval memo from the IBC Administrator with the final registration.

What do I need?

Before beginning your IBC Registration we recommend you have the following information readily available:

  • Lists of genes you express or knock down
  • Lists of plasmid systems used in your lab (These should be broken down by "viral" and "non-viral" systems)
  • List of cell lines you use
  • List of knockout or Transgenic mice you have and a reference for each
  • Information on any toxins or pathogens you use
