Research Compliance

The NC State Research Compliance Program is committed to advancing the highest standards of ethics, integrity and honesty as well as compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies governing research. These requirements serve to maintain the public trust — that is, trust in research results and outcomes; trust that animal and human subjects are treated ethically; trust that public funds are spent for the benefit of all; and trust that scientific investigation is done responsibly.


The Research Enterprise Data (RED) system recently received a software upgrade, which includes a number of enhancements. If you’re having any issues, please call the SPARCS Helpline, at 919-515-4267.
