Welcome to the BWH Office of Research Compliance. The ultimate goal of the Research Compliance Program is twofold: to help ensure quality and integrity in research across the institution, and; to serve as a centralized BWH resource for BWH investigators who need help navigating the vast array of regulatory requirements that govern all research activities.
We're here to help.
Please don't hesitate to contact our Office directly with any questions, concerns or comments.
