UC Office of Research Security and Ethics is committed to assisting researchers and faculty in navigating sponsor requirements and regulations.

All Forms, Policies and Procedures are now located within Research How 2, where faculty and staff will find a centralized location for all their transactional needs.

The University of Cincinnati partnerships and collaborations are critically important to our research and teaching. Our research security program supports our core values of integrity, collaboration, and innovation while protecting against improper foreign interference, conflicts of commitment, and other security issues.
