The Biological Safety Office promotes important health and safety practices that govern all personnel working with biological materials in basic and clinical research and/or teaching activities. We maintain and improve a Biological Safety Program to support the Augusta University research, clinical, and educational missions. We enforce compliance with federal, state, and local regulations and guidelines, AU policies, and industry standards related to biological safety. 

We serve as the administrative and compliance office for the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)
