Adrian Shelton is certainly no stranger to the University of Arizona. Not only is she married to the University’s top administrator [University of Arizona President Robert Shelton], she’s also actively involved with the campus community, particularly through her fundraising efforts for the Arizona Assurance financial aid program. But her ties to the UA recently became even stronger when she was appointed interim assistant vice president for research compliance and policy.


In the interim role, Adrian Shelton is heading up the University’s Office for the Responsible Conduct of Research, which helps University researchers comply with a variety of federal regulations pertaining to topics such as human subjects research, humane animal care and use, laboratory safety, and various issues related to scientific integrity and ethical practices.

A national search for an individual to fill the position on a full-time basis will be underway within the next few weeks.
