Research Policy and Compliance

The PMM administrative staff is dedicated to supporting the faculty to achieve the research goals of the department by facilitating institutional compliance.

Institutional policy development and compliance is the responsibility of specialized offices/units that oversee specific areas including (but not limited to):

  • Financial Conflicts of Interest
  • Human and/or animal subjects in research
  • rDNA and Biological pathogens and hazards in research
  • Export controls
  • Laboratory and radiation safety
  • Radiation safety

The PMM administrative team fosters a community of compliance by acting as an active liaison between our faculty and staff and the responsible units for compliance.  We serve as a resource on laws, policies, and guidelines that pertain to a particular research project and advocate for our science in policy discussions with the University as well as representatives of our sponsors and state and local governments.
