The mission and goals of the Regulatory Ethics Knowledge and Support (REKS) component of GHUCCTS are to:

  • Provide expert guidance and assistance in promoting safety and protection of research participants; and to develop and promote innovative training and educational resources for investigators (with an emphasis on diverse, under-represented populations).

  • Provide ethical consultation to GHUCCTS investigators in the design and implementation of clinical and translational research.

  • To facilitate and assist with the regulatory management of GHUCCTS intra- and inter-institutional CTSA research.

The REKS component emphasizes promoting and preserving the integrity of the research, the researcher and the research enterprise, preserving the trust between the public and the research enterprise, and the public trust in the fruits of the research process.
