Real Research using HAB. How to stay legal in Amateur Service

Been given an opportunity to use HAB for real research in addition to educational outreach ( STEM ).
What are the rules/how does one stay legal as part of a team doing real science? Some of the team such as the PI are PHD scientists
Some of the team are hams who are also students, who are learning and practicing real projects in HAB.
Some are technical support with ham licenses, some are field crew, launchers with ham licenses, etc.
Many are salaried or hourly workers. To stay legal how/who can get paid for their work? How does the balloon carrying ID, licensee have to distance themselves in a financial sense, if at all, to stay legal within Amateur regulations?
