RESEARCH RELATED POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Portions of a comprehensive Research Related Policies and Procedures handbook is now available. As additional sections are completed, they will be added to this page. Links to other documents and/or references will be included where appropriate or available.
The purpose of this Guide is to provide Principal Investigators with a clear explanation of current policies and procedures relating to the conduct of sponsored programs at Downstate Medical Center – i.e., "How do I hire a new employee?" When changes to these policies and procedures occur (at the initiative of a sponsor, the Research Foundation or the Medical Center, depending on the specific issue and the authority for change), this document will be updated.
Some of the material is a summary of more lengthy policies and/or procedures (i.e., the SUNY Patent and Copyright Policy); the symbol identifies the referenced primary source document for the policy or procedure which may be obtained in either the Scientific Affairs/Sponsored Programs Office (Basic Science Building Room 2-71E, 270-2680) or the Office of Research Administration (Admin Services Building Room 110, 270-1178). In addition, the symbol indicates where specific information may be updated annually or more frequently if necessary (e.g., fringe benefit rates).
Comments or suggestions regarding this handbook or additional material to be included will be appreciated and should be directed to the Office of Scientific Affairs.
