Initiating Research

Baylor University is focused on building and sustaining a strong culture of biosafety. EHS has developed resources to support our research community’s biosafety needs.


The Checklist for Research including Biological Materials, Recombinant and Synthetic Nucleic Acids provides guidance on setting up your lab space in BioRAFT, identifying necessary training, conducting research related risk assessments, registration and certification of various laboratory equipment, templates for SOPs and lab safety manuals, and guidance on registering your research with Baylor University.
