Tuskegee University Biosafety Committee is charged the responsibility of ensuring that all activities within Tuskegee University involving potentially biohazardous materials are conducted in a safe manner and in confomity with federal mandated standards. Biohazardous material includes infectious biological agents, toxins (carcinogens, mutagens, and tetrogens, and other hazardous chemicals), animal or human tissue or fluids, radioactive materials, and recombinant DNA. Infectious biological agents are viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites and other organisms/genetic systems that, by virtue of their replication properties, are potentially harmful to humans and/ or other living systems.
