Biosafety Training

Biosafety training is required for anyone who will have contact with biohazardous materials. The initial training will be held in-person and the training will need to be updated every 3 years online at  CITI

Personnel listed under a BSL2 IBC protocol need to take the CITI modules for Biosafety BSL2, and possibly Biosafety with animals, and biosafety with human tissues/cell lines (based on what work is included in the protocol).
