All biological agents and experimental procedures previously mentioned in study objectives or other application sections must be listed and described in adequate detail in attached documents (PDFs, word documents, etc.).
Files should be named in a manner to best explain the content of the document. Ensure that you submit the most recent versions of the decontamination and waste disposal forms.
Please note, SOP writing and submission to the IBC does not require BOHD consultation. While BOHD provides consultation as a service, they are not an approval body. The OBAO is also happy to assist with your SOP questions.
