The Office of Research Compliance maintains a dedicated training site for information about programs offered by each compliance area, from animal care to environmental health.

  • OSP-CRC: OSP-CRC training is scheduled individually with faculty members and departmental administrators by appointment. Upon request, we also offer small group and department trainings. Please contact the OSP AD responsible for your school or department to schedule a training session.
  • OSP-MED: OSP-MED training includes research administration updates; brown-bag lunches; workshops on grant writing and finding funding; and new NIH initiatives such as xTrain. Materials from some important sessions are listed below. In addition, OSP-MED runs a faculty development series of Retreats for BU investigators and administrators whose research portfolio is conducted off-campus at the Boston VA or Bedford VA sites. Workshops have covered multi-institution collaborations; how to administer your off-campus BU grant; bridging clinical, research and education roles; and faculty roles and expectations for advancement.
