New Research Security Program and Point of Contact

8 months ago

Dear Colleagues,

The Office of Research, Innovation and Impact has established a Research Security Program (RSP) in response to federal requirements and to strengthen protections of University research and development against foreign government interference and exploitation.  

The RSP will work with partners from across campus to implement federal programmatic guidelines, trainings, tools, and best practices for research security.

The program will be led by Taren Ellis Langford, who will serve as the University’s point of contact for research security matters in addition to her role as Senior Director for the Office for Responsible Outside Interests.

For more information, and to learn what you should do to protect University research and development, visit the Research Security Program webpage or contact Langford at
