New Requirements for Research Involving Controlled Substances

The campus is implementing revised procedures for complying with U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration requirements for the use of controlled substances in research. These changes will help ensure that the campus's institutional permit for use of controlled substances in research is renewed by May 2007.

Effective immediately, principal investigators are responsible for ensuring that specific requirements are met for any controlled substances used in the course of their research. More information is available in the campus announcement:
