About Us

The Office of Secure Research’s (OSR) mission is to enhance and support the ability of Ohio State’s research community to securely perform and manage restricted research projects and activities. We seek to enable cutting edge research by effectively managing Ohio State’s compliance with complex regulations governing the use, storage, and transfer of controlled knowledge and materials. To do this, our team helps researchers and leadership to synergistically navigate the processes of complying with federal regulations and obligations in three main areas: export controls, national security, and international engagement.
