Oversight of research with biohazardous materials, recombinant DNA, or biological toxins at the Texas A&m University Health Science Center is through Texas A&M University's Office of Biosafety and the Institutional Biohazard Committee (IBC). The Health Science Center maintains compliance with the biosafety program for all faculty, staff and students who may be exposed to biological hazards during performance of their duties or activities. The program is designed to achieve and maintain regulatory compliance as well as provide a way for researchers and the public to be informed and protected from biohazards. 

Texas A&M establishes and implements policies that provide for the safe conduct of biological and recombinant DNA research and that ensure compliance.
