The Research Institute is committed to the health and safety of our staff. As such, the mission of the Office of Research Safety (ORS) is to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations. ORS oversees the development, implementation, and administration of the biological, laboratory, and chemical safety programs while working closely with Environmental Health and Safety for all Hospital-wide safety initiatives. The office partners with investigators and staff to develop policies and procedures that are relevant and practical and comply with government regulations. ORS also administers the Institutional Biosafety Committee.
