Director, Office of Research Integrity
As director of the Office of Research Integrity, Brooke Langlitz encourages innovation, cooperation, and effective research while being on the lookout for any risks or ethical quandaries. She chairs the conflict of interest and commitment in research committee, and she also monitors research that has national security concerns. Brooke’s office also oversees the use of unmanned aircraft in research.
Research administration provided the interesting and rewarding work Brooke was looking for when she took a job working in the University of Iowa’s technology transfer office early in her career. She then came to Iowa State where she’s worked in the Office of Sponsored Programs Administration (OSPA) awards office on industry contracts and the Office for Responsible Research (ORR) before taking her current role as the first director of the Office of Research Integrity in 2015.
Prior to earning her JD at the University of Iowa, Brooke earned a dual bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science at Iowa State.
What’s your favorite Iowa State research discovery?
“My favorite research discovery is an invisibility cloak of sorts. It’s a thin, flexible material that reduces radar signal reflection to make an object undetectable with radar.”
Brooke can help with: Implementing and managing conflict of interest and commitment plans, reviewing any questions regarding conflict of interest, government regulated research (export controls), and using unmanned aircraft for research or recreation on campus.
