Research Compliance review committees at Texas A&M University provide the structure and requirements needed to maintain a safe and compliant environment for the research conducted at the University, including research personnel and the public.

Each committee is comprised of research personnel, community members, and University administrators. These committees provide transparent and consistent oversight for research in the areas of animal use, biohazards, and human subjects. Federal, state, and local requirements guide the formation and organization for each committee, and those requirements are not always parallel across the regulatory landscape.

Where possible, efforts are made to keep committee functions and roles consistent for ease of application. All three committees report to the University's institutional official (vice president for research).
