The Office for the Protection of Research Subjects (OPRS) provides administrative support for the review and approval of research protocols (experiments) involving humans and human embryonic stem cells (hES). We help ensure that regulations are adhered to for the protection and welfare of subjects, investigators, and the University. Before you conduct these types of research, please verify that you meet the training requirements and have your protocol approved by the designated committees.
The Office of Research Services (ORS) will observe the UIC reduced service schedule for non-essential services that begins on Monday, December 24th. As such, ORS will close at 5:00 PM on Friday, December 21, 2018, and will reopen at 8:30 AM on Wednesday, January 2, 2019.
