720. Retaliation for Reporting Noncompliance to the RIO or IRB
Care is taken to maintain the confidentiality of the person making the report and the details of the situation or incident. Upon the complainant's request, his or her anonymity will be preserved to the extent possible.
Retaliation against an individual for having made in good faith an allegation of noncompliance with human research regulations or policy is a violation of University policy and an offense subject to University disciplinary procedures.
Concerns about possible retaliation or harassment must be immediately reported to the RIO, IRB chair, or the Vice President of Research and Innovation.
