Regulatory & Compliance Resources
At NYU School of Medicine, regulatory and compliance committees are composed of faculty researchers and members of the greater scientific community. The committees ensure that research studies conducted in our labs comply with federal, state, and institutional guidelines. Before any project begins, the committees review and approve research protocols, implementing policies and practices to protect researchers, study participants, and the public from harm. The committees also follow strict guidelines to ensure that any animals used in experiments are treated humanely.
