Regulatory & Bioethics Support


The Regulatory and Bioethics Support program aims to provide centralized and accessible advice, guidance, and resources for investigators on issues related to human research protections, new drug and device authorizations, animal care and use, biosafety and other considerations relevant to the ethical conduct of research across the translational spectrum.

Our team advises investigators on regulatory requirements, documents, and processes as well as ethical considerations for designing and implementing research. This core also serves as a liaison between the Office of Human Research Protections and the UIC IRBs, investigators, research staff and CCTS partner organizations.

We are available to answer a quick question, review materials to check for completeness, clarity, and consistency prior to submission, or provide in-depth consultation on a challenging issue.
