Research Compliance Committee
Reviews new and existing compliance requirements imposed by federal regulations and program officers to identify opportunities to reduce the administrative burden associated with implementation without compromising compliance. Requirements reviewed may include but are not limited to human research participant protections, animal subject protections, financial conflicts of interest (individual and organizational), responsible conduct of research, research integrity, and research security. The main emphasis is on harmonization of requirements across federal agencies, reduction redundancies, and identification and promulgation of good practices.
