Research Administration > Research Policy & Compliance

Welcome

 

The Office of Research Policy and Compliance (RPC) provides leadership in shaping, interpreting, and implementing UC and UCLA research-related policies, procedures and guidance. The office provides the campus community with advice and counsel on matters related to the application of research policy including federal export control regulations and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) issues related to research. RPC serves as the administrative arm of the Conflict of Interest Review Committee (CIRC).

 

RPC works collaboratively with other UC and campus officials and units to resolve complex and sensitive issues related to research integrity and compliance. RPC staff work closely with, and support the Vice Chancellor for Research in his role as the campus Research Integrity Officer in responding to, investigating and reporting allegations of research misconduct.  The office operates under the direction of Ann Pollack, Assistant Vice Chancellor – Research, and reports to James S. Economou, M.D., Ph.D., Vice Chancellor for Research.
