Compliance Services

The Office for Pre-Award and Compliance Services (PACS) is committed to the promotion of ethical and responsible conduct of research through ensuring compliance with all applicable statutes, regulations, policies, and guidelines. The protection of human and vertebrate-animal subjects involved in research is one of our major areas of concern.
