Research & Sponsored Programs


Information... Resources... Oversight.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs coordinates services to assure that USD's growing research community has the information, training, and support to comply with federal regulations and the highest academic and professional standards.

USD's Animal Resource Center is state of the art.  Our Human Subjects Protection Program is accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Subjects Protection Programs, Inc.  The Institutional Biosafety Committee, Conflict of Interest/Intellectual Property Committee, Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), along with other compliance entities are established to assure adequate oversight of the U's expanding research enterprise.
