IBC & Biosafety Forms


IBC Registration – Biological Summary

The University of Connecticut’s IBC is now using HuskySMS Powered by BioRAFT, a new electronic database for registrations and amendments submitted to the IBC. The former registration system is no longer available. All new registrations and renewals must be submitted via HuskySMS, by completing a biological summary. The lab must be bio-enabled by the IBC Coordinator; please contact ibc@uconn.edu, to begin the registration process. The following link, uconn.bioraft.com, can be used to access the new database. Personnel can log in using their UConn NetID and password.

Amendments to existing registrations can still be submitted using the current amendment form which is then emailed to ibc@uconn.edu.

Previously approved registrations will eventually be accessible as attached PDF’s in a PI’s lab dashboard in HuskySMS. Please contact ibc@uconn.edu if you need a copy of your registration or amendments, and one is not available in your “documents” tab in HuskySMS.

If you have any questions about HuskySMS and need help, please feel free to contact ibc@uconn.edu with  “HuskySMS Support” in the subject line.
