Building a Culture of Research was the theme of a panel session sponsored by the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) that kicked off the 2016 Maine Regulatory Training and Ethics Center (MeRTEC) Research Integrity and Regulatory Compliance Symposium, held in Portland, Maine, on May 19 and 20. Joseph Tomaras, Director of Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance at Bates College, presented Focusing on your Organization: Coalition‐Building and Change Management in Building a Culture of Research. Cara Martin-Tetreault provided a different perspective in her presentation, Focusing on Yourself: Professional Development and Organizational Learning in Creating a Culture of Research. Together, these talks went beyond regulatory compliance and best practices to offer a unique perspective on creating a supportive and effective research culture.
