Note: Research studies undergoing an external sponsor audit must notify the Research Compliance and Support Services team at the earliest opportunity so that support and resources can be provided to the investigator and/or research team members. In addition, investigators are required to share evidence of study team completed training records (both study-specific and generic) and must submit these to the Research Compliance and Support Services team once available.
