The Office of Research at the Blumberg Institute places the highest value on the ethical and responsible conduct of research through serving as a resource for researchers. The office provides policies, procedures, support, training and advice to aid researchers with compliance related to federal, state, and local regulations with regard to research. Our faculty, staff and administrators accept responsibility for creating an environment in which research is conducted to the highest standards of research integrity. Accordingly, we maintain a comprehensive suite of research policies and procedures described in the Research Policies Handbook, and we provide training in the responsible conduct of research for all faculty, staff and students engaged in research.
