NIH site visit June 22, 2012 to assess Princeton's recombinant DNA oversight

Monday, May 7, 2012

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Biotechnology Activities (OBA) is planning an educational site visit to Princeton University on June 22, 2012.  The visit will focus on an assessment of the institution's program for recombinant DNA research oversight; the institutional documentation related to the recombinant DNA research program; and interviews with selected institutional personnel involved in the conduct or oversight of research.  

Laboratory inspections are not a routine part of OBA site visits.  

Information collected during the assessment will be used to identify opportunities to strengthen Princeton's Instiutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) program.  

Questions about the site visit or other biosafety issues should be directed to Jacqueline Wagner (609) 258-1427.
