Office of Regulatory and Research Compliance

The mission of this Office is to prevent, find and remediate problems in research compliance. To ensure compliance with federal, state, and university requirements for conducting research, the University at Albany has established several boards/committees that are charged with the oversight of research conducted in their respective areas.
