Participant Information

Research personnel listed on any IBC research permit working with agents at Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) or Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3), or listed on IACUC Teaching or Research Animal Use Protocols (AUP) are automatically added to the BOHP upon addition to the IBC permit or AUP.

Principal investigators are ultimately responsible for their permitted research staff completing the BOHP Intial Questionnaire through the BOHP web portal (link below) and annually updating the BOHP portal with contact information and other pertinent information for as long as they remain listed on the permit.

University operations personnel determined to have a risk of exposure to hazardous biological agents in the course of their employment at Texas A&M are added to the BOHP by their supervisor submitting an Operations/Animal Care Personnel Assessment form.

Upon receipt, BOHP will contact the individual for whom the assessment was prepared to complete the BOHP Intial Questionnaire through the BOHP web portal (link below) and update the BOHP portal annually thereafter with contact information and other pertinent information for as long as they maintain their employment in the position for which they were assessed.

Visitors to Texas A&M (College Station campus) facilities or laboratories where work is conducted with biological materials, or to animal facilities, farms or programs, please contact the BOHP at bohp@tamu.edu with details of your visit (anticipated arrival, length of stay, department and faculty member visited, purpose of visit).
