What’s New in the World of the Office of Research Compliance (ORC)?

A. New Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training Documentation Requirements

Personnel can now document their RCR training in one central location via the Emory Learning Management System (ELMS).

  • Postdocs and students (graduate and undergraduate) associated with NSF grants are required to document their completion of RCR training in ELMS.  Personnel associated with NIH grants are strongly encouraged to do so as well. For additional information, click here.

B. New in-person RCR training opportunities have been added

  • 01/24/13:  “The Ethics of Animal Research” Presented by Stuart Zola PhD, Director, Yerkes National Primate Research Center
  • Beginning in January 2013: Compliance Case Studies…

The Office of Research Compliance will offer monthly programs involving case studies on various issues concerning responsible conduct of research.  The programs will involve a presentation by the Office of Research Compliance followed by discussion and Q & A.  The sessions are designed to provide attendees with exposure to responsible conduct of research issues that have arisen in research settings.  No preparatory work is required.  Each session will cover a different case and a different area of RCR.  Emory personnel may register for as many sessions as they need.

Sponsor-Investigators: Investigators who hold their own IND or IDE assume all sponsor responsibilities required by the FDA, particularly record keeping and prompt reporting of safety reports to the FDA. The requirements of Sponsor-Investigators include both those of investigators and those of sponsors.

ORC provides educational resources and is available to consult with investigators, coordinators & the Emory research community in order to assist in complying with applicable regulations.   If you have questions or would like to discuss topics related to investigator-initiated research, please contact us at (404) 727-2398 or ORC@emory.edu.
