Biohazard & Infectious Control

The CGB is concerned with preventing accidental exposure to infectious agents by research personnel who work with human tissues. All investigators must agree to assume full responsibility for informing and training their personnel in methods for safe handling of body fluids and other human tissues. General information and procedures for handling human tissues and body fluids used in research can be obtained from CHTN Web site.  The CGB recommends that investigators handle all specimens with universal precautions.
