Research Compliance

The Research Compliance team at TAMUK works with faculty, staff and students to meet and maintain Federal, State, System, and University regulations and requirements to conduct research projects


TAMUK has been working diligently to allow as much research to move forward in spite of the COVID19 pandemic. 

Essential personnel have been identified to manage animal care and to monitor the status of valuable specimens and lab equipment even should the campus and travel all be shut down, and contingencies have been put in place to allow these individuals access to their areas of responsibility. 

Lab capacities for social distancing have been established, and best practices are being reviewed case by case for any research that cannot be done remotely.
