Research Compliance Standing Committee

Charge of the Committee

Reviews existing and new administrative requirements imposed by federal regulations and program officers related to but not limited to the human research participant protections, animal use and care, conflicts of interest (individual and institutional), objectivity in research, and export controls. The emphasis should be on harmonization of requirements across federal agencies, reduction of redundancies and identifying good practices.
