Reporting to the University Research Council (URC), the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) has a mandate to ensure the execution of safe and secure research in all laboratories at AKU where research is conducted both on-site and off-site. The Committee's main purpose is to perform critical hazard risk assessment, provide guidance and create awareness about the safe handling of various bio-hazardous materials. It ensures the compliance of policies in the light of institutional, national and international recommendations.
AKU-IBC meets once a month for review and approval of research/teaching activity proposals (Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month).
