The mission of the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is to ensure, regardless of funding, that activities with biohazardous materials are conducted safely and responsibly.  To fulfill this commitment, the IBC is charged with reviewing and monitoring all research and teaching activities by faculty, staff, and students that utilize biological infectious agents, toxins of biological origin, human or nonhuman primate products (cell lines, tissues, blood products), and recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules.  The IBC will maintain compliance with the NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules (NIH Guidelines) and will use the Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), 6th Edition, as an advisory guide.

As a public institution, the University must also comply with regulations prescribed by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce, including the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
