Ethics and compliance in research covers a broad range of activity from general guidelines about conducting research responsibly to specific regulations governing a type of research (e.g., human subjects research).
Effective research compliance relies on cooperative oversight and action from multiple units. UMOR works with the schools and colleges and other U-M central offices to facilitate research compliance and related business processes (e.g., laboratory inspections and technology transfers).
The university offers training options related to research ethics and compliance. The Program for Education and Evaluation in Responsible Research and Scholarship (PEERRS) provides online training modules in selected responsible conduct of research (RCR) topics (e.g., human subjects protection, foundations of good research practice) for faculty, staff, and students.
