University of Kentucky Research

Mission and Vision

Mission

To assist researchers who are seeking to strengthen their research programs and meet new NIH/NSF and/or regulatory (FDA/EPA) standards by supporting data quality, integrity and reproducibility.

Background

Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) are federal regulations for conducting research for products regulated by the FDA or EPA (Parts 160 and 792). Faculty and staff within the GRP Resource Center have formed mutually beneficial partnerships with biotech and pharmaceutical sponsors and implement these regulated research standards, where applicable. The unique capabilities of academic research combined with a GLP-compliant regulatory framework have provided new opportunities for bridging the gap in translational research with industry and an opportunity to develop and refine systems that can be adapted to support non-regulated academic research, which are currently subject to more rigorous and standardized guidelines for federal funding and publishing.
