The office of Research Compliance and Biosafety (RCB) is responsible for providing training and support to faculty, students, and staff in regulatory requirements for research. RCB provides administrative and operational support for Texas A&M’s research compliance review committees as well as other research compliance programs designated at the university.
Projects may require approval through Research Compliance and Biosafety committees if they involve:
- Human Subjects: Institutional Review Board (IRB)
- Vertebrate Animals: Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)
- Biohazards: Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)
Note: Please be aware that if you are using social media and/or online content, you may be subject to review by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
You should have a conversation with your faculty advisor very early on in the design of your project to determine whether or not your project may require approval from any of the three research compliance committees.
