Schulman IRB, a central IRB in customer service and technology, announced that Daniel Eisenman, Ph.D., RBP, SM (NRCM), CBSP, has joined the organization as Biosafety Officer.
In his new role, Dr. Eisenman will work with Schulman leadership to develop and manage a forthcoming institutional biosafety committee (IBC) service. He will also provide consulting services for research organizations navigating the IBC landscape. The new IBC service represents Schulman's response to many requests from research sponsors and institutions seeking an independent option for establishing IBCs when required by federal regulations.
"We're delighted to work with someone so experienced and knowledgeable as Dr. Eisenman," said Michael Woods, president and CEO of Schulman IRB. "He has already built and managed several biosafety programs and worked with many IBCs. He has a knack for explaining complex concepts in a clear, understandable manner. All of this makes him the ideal leader for Schulman's IBC services."
Dr. Eisenman previously served as Biological Safety Officer, Alternate Responsible Official for CDC select agents, and Institutional Contact for Dual Use Research at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. He has served on multiple institutional biosafety committees and BSL-3 oversight committees as well as consulted for multiple IACUC committees.
Schulman's commercial IBC service will launch in the spring of 2017.
