Azusa Pacific University is committed to providing the highest level of compliance support to investigators working with human or animal subjects. Compliance with standards for ethical treatment of human or animal subjects is a federal requirement for projects meeting the definition of research. The Office of Research and Grants provides presubmission consultations for investigator projects relevant to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). These services are available to university faculty, students, and staff.

For research ethics training, read about the CITI Program and see additional resources on our Training page. See the Research Misconduct page for important information on inappropriate practices or behavior in research and their consequences.
