Export Control Compliance

While the University applies the principles of freedom of inquiry and open exchange of knowledge, we must also be mindful of the federal laws and regulations governing the exchange of research materials and results that are subject to export controls.

Data Broker Services

The mission of Data Broker Services is to provide a centralized, standardized review of all requests for clinical data at UMSOM/UHealth. Data is increasingly the lifeblood of the organization and must flow to meet its needs. In an increasingly complex regulatory environment with concerns over information privacy and security, the flows of data, particularly identifiable and other sensitive data, must be balanced against compliance, security and regulatory risk.
