Faculty Research Forum: Regulations and Research

Navigating the regulations and requirements that pertain to research can be daunting, but help is available from campus experts and administrators. Conflict-of-interest and -commitment reporting affects all faculty and is a topic of increasing importance nationwide. In addition, faculty members who conduct research or who mentor students on projects involving human or animal subjects, biological agents, or export controlled materials or information need to know how to successfully navigate the regulatory environments that oversee these areas of research and teaching. This discussion session will enable faculty members to meet administrators with expertise in each area, and learn the importance of institutional and individual responsibilities for a successful research program.
