Research & Compliance

Research & Compliance

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, UW System, and other UW institutions support a broad range of scholarly activity through I-Grants.  Funds support to scholars in all stages of their careers and often serve as a critical source of support for individual work, department/unit priorities, college/division strategies, and institutional initiatives.

Research with Human Subjects »

Faculty, staff, and students conducting research with human subjects can access information regarding Federal, University of Wisconsin System, and University of Wisconsin-Whitewater policies and procedures.  Also link to the campus' Institutional Research Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) forms and protocol submission timeline, resources for developing an IRB protocol, and other resources designed to help researchers improve study design while protecting participants.

Research with Animals »

Important resources, forms, and policies are provided to aid faculty, staff, and students conducting research with animals.  Information is provided regarding Federal, UW System, and UW-Whitewater policies and procedures.  Scholars can also connect to the campus' Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) forms, resources for developing an IACUC animal study, and other materials to facilitate the design of sound research and compliance with the Animal Welfare Act.

Responsible Research »

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is responsible for managing the campus' Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training program.  RCR topics include research misconduct, data management, conflict of interest, collaborative science, responsible authorship, research mentoring, peer review, lab animals, and human subjects.  Faculty, staff, and students can also access information and best practices related to biosafety and ethics.
