The following MSRC Policy & Safety Manuals can be accessed by clicking on their corresponding enclosure:
The MSRC is committed to the safety of all people who work and collaborate in the facility. The MSRC Biosafety Manual will be detailing the different types of biological risks associated with our laboratory facilities. The MSRC uses Biosafety Level 1 (BSL-1), BSL-2, and BSL-3. The MSRC Biosafety Manual will be reviewed and updated at yearly intervals by MSRC-IBC and EQOSHO personnel.
The MSRC open research space design paradigm features standardization, flexibility and adaptability, system integration, and ease of sharing equipment and human resources. Investigators use MSRC laboratories to conduct research at the cellular and molecular level. The MSRC seeks to promote interaction between investigators, students and other personnel from different fields in order to foster collaboration in a respectful and cooperative environment leading to productive and successful research.
The NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules (NIH Guidelines) detail safety practices and containment procedures for basic and clinical research involving recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules, including the creation and use of organisms and viruses containing recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules.
