The OVCRI provides programs and services to help you meet your research goals and comply with the federal, state, and university regulations that govern the conduct of research at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Due to the complexity of many research projects, researchers are likely to interact with multiple compliance units.
Research Training Portal
As a UIUC faculty, student, or staff member involved in research, you may be required to take compliance training through UIUC's Research Training Portal. These training modules are provided by multiple compliance units, as well as laboratory-specific training provided by faculty members or facility supervisors. Specific training areas include animal care and use, conflict of commitment or interest, human subject use, laboratory and research safety, and research integrity.
If you are responsible for a research team, make sure you understand financial management, conflicts of commitment and interest, research safety, and best practices for giving credit for work. Training is key! You might like to review resources related to:
Register your project with the Institutional Biosafety Committee through the Division of Research Safety (DRS) and obtain approval before initiating your research.
Register the machine with DRS and develop a written safety plan and safe operating procedures.
Obtain a radiation permit from DRS. The facilities, equipment, and procedures required to work safely with these materials will be addressed in the registration or permitting.
Get your cabinet certified at the time of installation, annually thereafter, and at any time the unit is relocated, then send certification report to DRS.
