Reporting Concerns for Human Subjects Research
The University has contracted with a compliance agency for a toll-free reporting hotline. The greatest benefit of the toll-free hotline, other than being free to the user, is the anonymity! Callers may report noncompliance and request a copy of the final report. Although the caller's name and mailing address may be given to the compliance agency, no one at the University may access this information. The caller remains 100% anonymous to all individuals at the University! It should be noted that this hotline could be used to report any misconduct at UC's Medical Center. The hotline is not restricted to research concerns. You may also file a report via the web.
To report compliance concerns: Email: research.compliance.@uc.edu or Call - 513-558-5034
Toll-Free Anonymous Compliance Hotline - (800) 889-1547
