Basic Science Research

If you are working with animals, hazardous materials, or in a wet lab, you may be required to complete training specific to these areas.

Animal researchers must attend training and a lecture from Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee as well as the Wet Lab on Animal Care and Use.

Individuals who intended to handle biohazardous materials are required to take a Biosafety and Blood Borne Pathogen training and exam courtesy of ISMMS PEAK.

Lab Safety

Lab safety is critical. We offer a variety of types of training to help you protect human and animal subjects.

  • If you transfer to a different lab, you must take orientation again, covering any applicable changes (such as egress routes and locations of emergency equipment).
