FDA Regulated Research Oversight Program

The Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) and Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education (OVCRGE) jointly created the FDA Regulated Research Oversight Program to promote and verify regulatory compliance.

This campus-wide undertaking aims to:

  • Create campus policy to ensure FDA-regulated research is conducted in accordance with federal regulations
  • Provide training for faculty who hold a FDA-issued investigational new drug (IND) or investigational device exemption (IDE), and
  • Assure timely and quality interactions with the FDA.

Please contact FDA-Regulated-Research-Oversight@lists.wisc.edu for additional information.

The new policy library brings all university-wide policies together in one place so you can quickly locate the most accurate, up-to-date version of a policy.
