Conflict of Interest:


Export Controls:

  • Are you considering or starting a project with export control restrictions? Does your project have special IT security requirements? Do you need help with a Technology Control Plan?
  • Are there publication or foreign national restrictions on your research?
    • Give Elizabeth a call at 734.647.7007 or swing by 1008 LEC to learn more about available resources.
    • Email to be provisioned with ITAR-compliant ITS Exchange email, with your uniqname and full name with a cc to your department IT manager. It typically takes 24 to 36 hours to be provisioned.


Responsible Conduct of Research and Scholarship Training:

  • RCRS workshops are designed for Ph.D. students, postdoctoral research fellows, and any Master’s or undergraduates who are NSF/NIH funded. This faculty-led training teaches students and fellows about best research practices and engineering ethics.
