Gene Technology Research Committee

All gene technology applications are assessed and reviewed by the UNSW Gene Technology Research Committee (GTRC) (formerly the Institutional Biosafety Committee) which meets monthly to review applications.

The Committee's specialist members have a combined expertise in the relevant disciplines associated with gene technology research.These disciplines may include molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, virology, biochemistry, epidemiology, plant biotechnology or bio‐containment/ biosafety engineering, and infection control.

The GTRC Terms of Reference can be found in the UNSW Gene Technology Research Procedure
