Marked fields are required.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules or the NIH Guidelines detail procedures and practices for the containment and safe conduct of research involving recombinant and synthetic nucleic acid molecules, including research involving genetically modified plants and animals, and human gene transfer research.

All institutions that receive NIH funding for research involving recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules must comply with the NIH Guidelines. Researchers at institutions that are subject to the NIH Guidelines must comply with the requirements even if their own projects are not funded by NIH.

In order to ensure Florida State University (FSU) is up to date with the recent modification to the NIH Guidelines, all principal investigators (PI) are asked to complete the following updated survey form.
