Research Integrity and Compliance

The mission of the Office of Research Integrity and Compliance (ORIC) is to assist the Emory Community and the Office of Research Administration (ORA) staff in promoting research compliance with Emory policies and Federal Regulations. ORIC is available for research compliance inquiries and provides training and support as needed. We facilitate the review of research involving human stem cells. We collaborate with ORA offices and researchers in modifying and creating new polices and guidance. We track changes to current regulations to support Emory's research compliance. We oversee the review of our internal ORA research compliance processes, including FDA and Controlled Substance and Dangerous Drug matters, and investigate and support the Research Integrity Officer (RIO) during the review of research misconduct allegations and research noncompliance investigations.
