Controlled Substances

Controlled Substances (CSs) are drugs that are regulated by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy because of the potential for abuse. DEA regulations and State Pharmacy Board rules allow faculty and staff researchers (Investigators) to obtain and use Controlled Substances in IACUC-approved animal research or Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) approved research with cell culture systems.

In order to do so, Investigators must either:

  1. Hold a current individual DEA Research Registration or
  2. Conduct the research as an “agent” of a university official or faculty researcher, who holds a current DEA and State Pharmacy Board Research Registration.

If you need to obtain Controlled Substances for your research, contact Aditi Bhatiya, (614) 688-9301, at Ohio State’s College of Medicine Office of Research.
