Use of Controlled Substances in Research


Use of Controlled Substances in Research

Claremont McKenna does not allow the use of controlled subtances in research without the explicit permission of the Dean of the Faculty. The College will verify that permission is granted before any such research is conducted.

If approval is given to a PI to administer controlled substances as part of a research protocol or if the PI plans to conduct research on the drugs themselves, the PI must ensure that the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) requirements, including registration, inspection, and certification, if applicable, are met. Regional DEA offices can supply forms and information concerning the type of registration required for a particular substance for research use. The main registration office in Washington, DC may be reached at 800-882-9539. Information is also available from the National Institute on Drug Abuse at 301-443-6300.

Questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Office of Institutional Philanthropy.
