Office of Research Compliance (ORC)

Students appreciate the hands-on research opportunities in UB's Physiology and Biophysics labs.

Compliance is an integral part of research. It ensures UB research is conducted without bias, and with the highest scientific and ethical standards.

This office oversees policies and programs including: financial conflicts of interest; responsible conduct of research, intellectual and creative activity; and export controls. It interacts with federal, state and other regulatory agencies and works collaboratively with the university's safety offices.
