IBC Registration

All work with biological materials must be registered with the Biological Safety Officer (BSO). 

The University of New Hampshire uses Cayuse Hazard Safety for Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) protocol management. To submit a protocol for IBC review, log on to the system, navigate to “Approved Protocols and Actions” and select “Start a New IBC Application”.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are new to the Cayuse system, you must contact the Biological Safety Officer by e-mailing unh.ibc@unh.edu to be added to the system.  You will not be able to log into the system without a username and password.
