The Office of Research Support and Compliance (RSC) partners with researchers to maintain the integrity of research at the University of Texas at Austin. To do so, RSC helps researchers:

  • Protect the rights and welfare of human research participants;
  • Conduct research that uses animals humanely;
  • Utilize recombinant DNA and biohazardous materials safely;
  • Foster transparency in research by managing financial conflicts of interest;
  • Assist researchers in managing foreign relationships and activities; and
  • Conduct responsible research by providing research ethics education.

RSC’s goal is to foster the highest quality research by assisting researchers with compliance and research best practices.
