  • Education in research ethics and research compliance

News and Announcements

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and 16 other federal departments and agencies have adopted revised regulations surrounding the protection of human research participants.   The new final rule goes into effect January 19, 2018 and updates the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, also known as the Common Rule, under 45 CFR 46, Subpart A.

RCS will be updating policies, forms and guidance to address these important changes.  RCS will keep the UO research community apprised through announcements on our website and through other education and outreach offerings.

Students, staff, and faculty are all encouraged to attend a workshop and welcome to drop by our office for consultations during open office hours!
