Research Compliance

Arkansas State University is committed to the highest standards of integrity in all areas of research and scholarship and conducts its research in compliance with federal, state, local, and institutional laws, regulations, and policies. Consistent with these principles, the Office of Research Administration and Compliance has responsibility for developing governing principles that guide the conduct of research on campus. Additionally, the Office works with faculty oversight committees and boards (including the Institutional Review Board, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, the Institutional Biosafety Committee, and the Radiation Safety Committee) to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements that involve human and vertebrate animal subjects, biohazardous materials, and radioactive isotopes. Office personnel also work closely with the Environmental Health and Safety on other safety programs, including responsible use of lasers.

Other responsibilities include maintaining assurances and certifications with appropriate federal and state regulatory agencies, provision of laboratory and other training programs that are germane to externally-funded programs, negotiation of research-related contracts and agreements, and administrative support of interdisciplinary centers and institutes.
