Controlled Substances are drugs, chemicals, and agents that are defined and regulated by the state and Federal government.

The controlled substances office within the Office of Research Administration provides information to Brandeis investigators whose research involves controlled substances, to help them follow university policies and Federal, state and local laws and regulations.

WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW?

Controlled substances are divided in Schedules I-VI.

In Massachusetts, all medications that require a prescription and do not fall into Schedules I-V are Schedule VI and are considered controlled substances.
