The Office of Research Compliance (ORC) promotes a culture of compliance, research integrity, and high quality research within the University community. This is accomplished through consultation and educational programs for all researchers. The ORC facilitates University research, teaching, and public service programs by providing oversight and coordination of research compliance areas involving human subjects, vertebrate animals, recombinant DNA, hazardous agents and research misconduct.
Clemson University President Jim Barker's directive entitled Institution-wide Compliance with Federal Regulations and Institutional Policies in the Conduct of Research and Teaching.
The ORC issues a newsletter each semester to keep the University’s research community current on important Institutional Review Board, Institutional Biosafety Committee and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee information. If you have an idea for a topic you’d like us to cover, please e-mail Daniel Harris.
