Research Certifications

UPEI is home to a range of different types of research and prides itself on the quality and relevance of research conducted by UPEI faculty, students and staff members.

Depending on the research, one or more research certification(s), such as ethics, animal care, biosafety and/or radiation safety, are often required. Faculty members are advised to obtain the required certification approval(s) before receiving research funding. Advance approval allows researchers to access funds more quickly once they are awarded.

Please contact Stephanie Palmer, Research Compliance Coordinator, at 902-620-5104 or if you have any questions about research certifications that may be required or the certification process.
