Grants and contracts are made to institutions rather than to individuals. Thus, it is the responsibility of the Research Foundation for SUNY/Buffalo State College to ensure that all research conducted under its auspices is carried out in such a manner that the rights and welfare of human and animal subjects, society, the environment and researchers are protected, and that research activities are in compliance with all applicable State and Federal regulations. The policies and procedures adopted by the Research Foundation for SUNY/Buffalo State College to ensure research safety and compliance are designed to meet the above objectives. Activities defined as "under the auspices of the college" include activities conducted as part of college employment, as part of course credit or fulfillment of a degree requirement, activities involving use of college resources, or involving publication that credits college affiliation.

Research Requiring Compliance Review

Regulation and safety policies apply to many different categories of research and include research conducted with or without external sponsorship. Since regulations and standards change frequently and University policy requires review of some activities that an investigator may not consider requiring review, it is recommended that researchers contact the Research Foundation Office before initiating any research project.

  • For research involving the use of human subjects, investigators (faculty and students) should contact Gina Game, IRB Administrator.
  • For research involving the use of animal subjects, investigators (faculty and staff) should contact Jean DiPirro, IACUC Chair.
  • For research involving controlled substances or hazardous materials, investigators (faculty and staff) should contact David Miller, Environmental Health and Safety Officer.
  • For information involving Technology Transfer, please contact Lisa H. Krieger, Interim Director.
  • For information involving Export Controls, please contact Gina Game, Research Compliance Manager. For Export Control matters that involve travel and international wire transfers, please contact Carol Julian, Manager, Accounts Payable/Purchasing.

Compliance Reference Guide

The Sponsored Programs Advisory Council's (SPAC) Compliance Committee has developed a Compliance Reference Guide for Researchers to help faculty working on sponsored programs understand compliance policies that govern the conduct of sponsored programs. The guide is intended to provide high-level information to make them aware of the impacted areas.
