Creighton University's Institutional Biosafety Committee has implemented the use of the new CITI Biosafety/Biosecurity training course for anyone conducting research involving biohazardous material, including Infectious Biological Agents, Recombinant DNA and Select Agents. All Principal Investigators, Co-Investigators, Laboratory Technicians, and Research Staff involved in research using biohazardous material in their laboratories are required to complete the CITI Basic Biosafety Training course. "Research Staff" refers to anyone, including students of any kind, conducting research on or otherwise handling biohazardous material, including Infectious Biological Agents, Recombinant DNA, and Select Agents.
To access the CITI Biosafety/Biosecurity course instructions and the CITI website, please go to the CITI Biosafety/Biosecurity course. If you have any questions or difficulties with CITI, please contact Mary Ritterbush, Research and Compliance Education Coordinator, at 402-280-2680 or MaryRitterbush@creighton.edu. If you have previously completed a CITI course and do not remember your CITI Username and Password, please call 402-280-2680.
