Description: The final offering of the Life Cycle of the Award Series features discussion of a variety of compliance topics essential to the knowledge of every research administrator. This three-hour workshop will cover the basics of institutional committee review for biosafety, human research participants, and animal research, as well as export compliance, conflict of interest, and research misconduct. True-life examples will highlight the importance of knowing where to find expertise and resources at your institution and beyond, creating a “compliance network”. 

Learning objectives: Participants will have an understanding of basic issues and red flags for key areas of research compliance. Participants will be introduced to the concept of building a culture of compliance and balancing regulation with facilitation.
