Biosafety Training

All personnel involved in biological research, including Principal Investigators, must complete training prior to being added to an active Biological Research Registration. Training in biosafety is conducted through online or in-person training sessions, as well as hands-on, specific training in each individual lab in which experiments are performed. Training will cover a period of five years from the date of completion, after which time personnel must complete the Refresher Training course, also offered through the CITI program.

The Principal Investigator is responsible for ensuring that members of their lab receive proper training in the biohazards and controls specific to their research and the safe conduct of the experimental procedures to be used.
