The Mission of the TTUHSC Research Integrity Office (RIO) is to provide administrative oversight of TTUHSC research activities to ensure adherence with ethical and compliance standards required by federal and state regulations and by institutional policies. RIO manages research compliance committees and provides ongoing monitoring and training for the TTUHSC research community in areas such as human and animal research, lab safety, recombinant DNA, research misconduct, and financial conflicts of interest.

The many components of the Research Integrity office provide oversight of TTUHSC policies related to regulatory compliance. Our employees are committed to providing ongoing training and monitoring in order to promote ethical and compliant research practices throughout the TTUHSC system.
