NYU Shanghai is committed to ensuring that the conduct of research under its auspices meets the highest ethical and regulatory standards. In order to meet this goal, the Research Compliance Office reviews and oversees all research involving human and animal subjects. This review and oversight function is designed to foster the ethical conduct of research and ensure compliance with all relevant regulations while facilitating the conduct of research at NYU Shanghai.
The Grants Office at NYU Shanghai is primarily responsible for faculty research sponsored by Chinese funding agencies. The Office also coordinates with other University departments at NYU Shanghai and NYU New York to provide support in other funding streams.
NYU Shanghai Research Compliance Office is committed to the ethical and responsible animal care and use on campus. All activities involving the use of vertebrate animals in research and teaching are conducted in compliance with Chinese and US federal regulations, policy, and guidelines. All research involving animals, regardless of funding source, must be reviewed and approved by NYU Shanghai’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). Depending on the study activity, approval by Eastern China Normal University’s Institutional Research Ethics Committee may also be required.
All individuals who wish to engage in animal work and/or gain access to the vivarium must complete the mandatory training given by the Research Compliance Office designated trainers. This website is designed to provide animal users access to information necessary for conducting animal research in China and on campus, as well as forms required for IACUC review process.
NYU Shanghai is dedicated to the application and dissemination of knowledge by protecting and promoting efficient commercial development of university discoveries for the benefit of society. The NYU Office of Industrial Liaison is the gateway to the University’s technology transfer endeavors.
