Good Laboratory Practices

Following Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) means more than practicing good science when conducting research experiments. GLPs are federal regulations that apply when conducting in vitro and in vivo safety studies and, in some cases, efficacy studies on certain products regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Texas A&M University has developed a GLP Quality System Program (QSP) that applies to all Texas A&M organizational units that seek to participate in GLP studies.
