Radiation, Chemical and Biological Safety Committee

MISSION STATEMENT The mission of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Safety Committee (RCBC) of Delaware State University is to set state of the art bio-safety standards, in accordance with the NIH, CDC, USDA, state and university guidelines for research involving recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules and other hazardous agents.  These are to include the  assessment of risks and establishment of regulations and monitoring in regard of the receipt, manipulation, transportation, storage, disposal, research or use of bio-hazardous materials in order to guarantee the well-being of the community and society in general within the University campuses. The committee will be responsible for reviewing and updating existing University policies, procedures and processes governing bio-medical, bio-safety and bio-hazard issues as related to University-wide research activities. The committee will also be responsible for identifying standards of best practices and deriving appropriate policies, procedures and processes for reviewing the pertinent federal regulations to assure that research protocols are compliant with federal requirements. To this end, the Biosafety Committee will assist and advise Principal Investigators (PI) and other researchers on their responsibilities to ensure that the biological and chemical aspects of their research are conducted in a safe manner using established safety standards, principles and work authorization.  Committee Members Aristides Marcano - Chair Department of Physics and Engineering (Committee Chair) Marikis Alvarez - Associate - Dean of the College of Agriculture John Austin - Associate Vice President for Research Richard Barczewski - Chairperson Agricultural and Natural Resources Department Leonard Davis - Associate Dean CMNST and Chairperson Department of Biological Sciences Sangeeta Gupta - Assistant Professor Public and Allied Health Dennis Rubino - Research Administrator OSP Gil Russell - Technical Director of Information Technology Michelle Shorter - Associate Vice President Chief Risk Officer Clytrice Watson - Associate Dean CMNST Cherese Winstead - Chair Department of Chemistry Khalid Zerrad - Planning and Construction      

Your artwork could fly in space!

Your artwork could fly in space! If we receive at least 100 entries, one DSU student's design on a 3 ½-inch square of paper will be flown on the International Space Station and returned embossed with a certification stating that it flew in space! All you have to do is design a mission patch for the  Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP), in which a number of DSU students are participating. See some actual NASA mission patches here, and see some designs that students at other participating schools have flown previously here. Rules: A Mission Patch must be a piece of paper NO LARGER than 3.5-inch x 3.5-inch, and its design should reflect pride in DSU and our participation in the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP). There is no restriction on the type of paper or the inks to be used. But to fly, it must be paper, not card stock or cardboard.  Patches submitted on card stock or cardboard will be (and have been) rejected. A Mission Patch can be black & white or full color. A Mission Patch can only be composed of a single sheet of 3.5-inch x 3.5-inch paper and the ink on the paper.  The design itself does not have to be square or round or any particular shape; it just has to fit on the 3½-inch square of paper. A Mission Patch cannot include multiple layers of paper glued or taped on top of one another. Deadline: May 15, 2015 Entries can be submitted in one of two ways: Send a PDF of your patch design to AND  If your design is selected as the winner, you will also need to submit your actual paper design as described in 2: Mail or deliver your paper patch design to: Dr. Matt Bobrowsky CMNST, Library, 6th Floor Delaware State University 1200 N. DuPont Highway Dover, DE  19901-2277 Deadline: May 15, 2015 For more information, contact: Dr. Matt Bobrowsky,, 302-857-7729.
