Research compliance feedback and reporting research concerns

Feedback and recommendations raised by research subjects, university personnel, or the general public for the services we provide are welcomed by the Office of Research Protections and Compliance (ORPC). The ORPC also responds to all concerns involving research compliance and our compliance committees (e.g. human subjects use, animal welfare, biosafety, COI, RCR, Export Control). The information will help us improve research at UMBC.
