It serves as the administrative office for the faculty research committees: the Institutional Review Board (IRB); the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC); the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC). In addition, it provides training, guidance and education on export controls, research integrity, and responsible conduct of research. The mission is to ensure that all research conducted on campus complies with all applicable laws, regulations, and University policies.
