Trusted CI Webinar: Regulated Communities of Practice, September 26th @11am EST

Carolyn Ellis and Erik Deumens will be presenting the talk, Lowering the barrier to entry for Regulated Research through community building, September 26th at 11am (Eastern).

Please register here.

Keeping up on the newest Federal regulations or supporting it appropriately is a full time job even though it is rarely able to be a dedicated position. We will share how a new community of practice on the block is lowering the barrier to entry by elevating the entire community’s regulated research programs through: 1) Building relationships 2) Collecting best practices 3) Opening the dialogue on challenges by broadly sharing lessons learned 4) Aligning with other communities 5) Simplifying compliance 6) Advocating for the community

Regulated Research Community of Practice (RRCoP) is a partner of Trusted CI looking to extend the reach towards research compliance and advocacy of the special circumstances that make research in academic institutions different from industry.

Join us for glimpse of RRCoP roots, recent contributions, lessons learned, and what the future holds.

Speaker Bios:

Carolyn Ellis is the CMMC Program Manager at University of California, San Diego, where she builds and leads sustainable regulated research programs. Carolyn has significant experience in grants, research, and implementing the security enclaves for DOD contracts. As leadership of NSF award # 2201028, Building a Community of Practice for Supporting Regulated Research, Carolyn is passionate about growing future leaders within the research compliance community. Her community building efforts also include mentoring within various women in STEM communities such as WiCys (Women in Cybersecurity).

Erik Deumens has a PhD in computational nuclear and chemical physics and has done research in modeling of chemical reactions and designed complex computational software. Since 2011, he is the full time director of the department of Research Computing in UFIT at the University of Florida. Starting 2015, he and his staff have been in charge of a FISMA 800-53 moderate computing environment for research. During 2018 a second generation system was completed to meet both FISMA and CUI 800-171 requirements. The new system has the advantage that it is more cost effective for research budgets. The system was assessed for compliance by a 3PAO. See https:///www.rc.ufl.edu for details on UFIT RC.
