Regulatory Support

Request Clinical Research Services

The Regulatory Support unit provides assistance to investigators before protocols are submitted to regulatory agencies. Our goal is to interact closely with investigators to help them meet regulatory requirements. Several faculty members have extensive knowledge of requirements regarding human subjects and are available for consultation services to assist investigators in meeting regulatory requirements.

Training in human research protection is provided to faculty and staff through the Human Research Protections Program (HRPP), through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) training module, and via an online course on Research Aspects of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). 

Experienced staff in the HRPP can provide guidance with FDA applications. The ACTRI has staff with regulatory experience who can assist researchers with various regulatory support issues. Research Coordinator and Administrator Training is available to Clinical Coordinators and administrative staff on the Research Compliance Program (RCP) Intranet. If you are a UC San Diego employee and cannot access the RCP Intranet, please contact the RCP at For regulatory support services, please submit an ACTRI Services Request using the button above. Rates for ACTRI help with submissions.
