Presentation on theme: "Recombinant DNA Training for Research Group Members How to Use this Training Template Principal Investigators (PIs) whose research involves recombinant."— Presentation transcript:

1 Recombinant DNA Training for Research Group Members How to Use this Training Template Principal Investigators (PIs) whose research involves recombinant DNA are required by NIH to provide their research group members training on lab-specific hazards and emergency procedures. The Berkeley Biosafety has prepared this PowerPoint presentation template to assist PIs in meeting this requirement. Text in italics [example] indicates where the template should be modified to accurately reflect your lab hazards and procedures.

2 Working with Recombinant DNA in the _[name of PI]_ Laboratory [Name of PI] [Name of Department] [Date Training Is Given]

3 Basic Requirements Research involving recombinant DNA is closely regulated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and requires a Biological Use Authorization (BUA) approved by the Berkeley campus Committee on Laboratory & Environmental Biosafety (CLEB). CLEB works with the campus Biosafety Program, which can provide additional guidance

4 Basic Requirements (Cont’d) All work involving recombinant DNA – regardless of funding source -- must adhere to the mandatory NIH “Guidelines for Research Involving recombinant DNA Molecules” found at _oba.html _oba.html _oba.html

5 Purpose of This Training Section IV-B-7-d-(2) of the NIH Guidelines The NIH requires that the PI provide lab- specific biosafety training on the hazards of the specific experimental procedures used in their laboratory to members of their research group. One way to document this training is to record it in the minutes of a group meeting, listing all participants.

9 PI RESPONSIBILITIES Section IV-B-7: ROLE OF THE PI On behalf of the institution, the Principal Investigator is responsible for full compliance with the NIH Guidelines for any recombinant DNA research. The PI must: The PI must: Not initiate or modify recombinant DNA research which requires CLEB approval until that research has been approved by CLEB and has met all other requirements of the NIH Guidelines. Not initiate or modify recombinant DNA research which requires CLEB approval until that research has been approved by CLEB and has met all other requirements of the NIH Guidelines. Report any significant problems, violations of the NIH Guidelines, or any significant research-related accidents and illnesses to the Biological Safety Officer and CLEB.

Liquid waste will be treated with 10% household bleach and allowed to set for 20 minutes and drain-disposed. Solid red bag wastes will be placed in a red-bag lined bin and transferred to the _________ Building, Room______ medical waste storage area for pick up and disposal. Work areas must be disinfected with dilute bleach and 70% ethanol. Work areas must be disinfected with dilute bleach and 70% ethanol.

20 Emergency Procedures [modify as appropriate] In the event of a laboratory accident: In the event of a laboratory accident: –Tend to injured person –Notify the PI or the lab supervisor; inform the PI IMMEDIATELY if recombinant DNA was involved so that CLEB and the Biosafety Officer can be notified within 24 hrs. –Initiate clean up procedures. –Notify EHS, if the PI is not available, or (After Hours) –Seek medical attention at Tang or the Alta Bates ER at 2450 Ashby Avenue after hours.

21 Conclusion This training is designed to inform you of the NIH requirements regarding use of recombinant DNA, and our lab’s implementation of the NIH requirements. All recombinant DNA experiments require BUA approval by CLEB and any changes require an approved amendment to the BUA. If you have any questions on this training, let me know, and I will contact the Biosafety Officer for assistance.
