As a university community of scholars, it is important that our research and scholarship is conducted and shared with integrity and in compliance with ethics in research. The Office of Research promotes research integrity, compliance and quality research within the university community. This is achieved partly through investigator training in human subjects research,  and research involving animal use and care.
