of research volunteers, guided by a 1964 World Medical

science and society should never take precedence over
considerations related to the well-being of the subject."

computer modeling techniques and cell tissue / organ
culture methodologies that have reduced the need for animals to be
used in research and teaching.
Federal export control laws govern how we transfer or transmit
certain technology, materials, data and information to anyone
overseas and to foreign nationals on U.S. soil. With almost
constantly changing international political, military and economic
environments, the rules are complicated.
Many federal and institutional compliance regulations require
training, both in person and/or online, often before you are
allowed to begin your research.
