The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) is committed to facilitating open and publicly accessible research and scholarly activities both domestically and internationally. However, in some instances, restrictions may be placed on such activity in the interest of national security or protection of trade. This is especially true when federal funding is involved.
Pending further discussion and resolution at the Federal level, we want to ensure HSC faculty, staff, and students are aware of these requirements and the resources available in order to comply with them. Policies and procedures are already in place for the campus to comply with export control regulations, report foreign research support and collaborations, and personal financial interests associated with both foreign and domestic entities. With the heightened sensitivity on these issues nationally, we wish to remind you of your obligations to report on international research and scholarly activities.
