Research Compliance

On these pages we use Research Compliance to refer to compliance with local, state and federal regulations. Safety and Welfare are dominant themes in this section and include Institutional BiosafetySafety and Protection of Human Subjects and the Welfare of Laboratory Animals.

Reporting of Research Misconduct on federally funded grants is required under federal regulation and so Research Misconduct is discussed here. Export Control is a complex area of federal regulation with significant penalties for violations, so faculty and administrators are well advised to be knowledgeable of this area.

A final topic presented in this section is the Management of Conflict of Interest. Conflict of Interest is an increasingly common issue, which with proper disclosure and usually easily managed.

Another broad area of compliance is budgetary and fiscal compliance with university, state and federal, and agency requirements. These are presented in detail in the Post-Award section of the web site.
