Compliance

Welcome to the Research Compliance web pages. Compliance areas covered include animal subjects, research using human subjects, biological and environmental safety, export control, conflict of interest, and responsible conduct of research (research ethics). 

The compliance staff act as a liaison between Institutional Officials, who have oversight over compliance issues, the various committees that monitor and oversee state and Federally-regulated research activities, and faculty, staff and students who do the research.  Our goal is to provide services that minimize the burden that staying up-to-date with Federal regulations places on researchers.

These pages include policies and procedures, forms, guidelines, training programs, monitoring and accountability, links to useful resources, and answers to frequently-asked questions.
