Regulatory Requirements & Info

All research is regulated by Federal, State and local agencies. Approval is required for research involving human participants or animal subjects before research activities begin. Even if you are being added to a previously approved IRB, IACUC study, you must complete all requirements and mandatory training.

The Office of Research Compliance oversees all areas of research compliance, including research that utilizes humans, animals, rDNA, radiation safety, and chemical safety. It coordinates conflict of interest, export controls and handles inquiries and investigations regarding allegations of research misconduct.
