Research Integrity

Two major events, the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial during World War II and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study in the 1950s and 1960s, have forced the examination of ethical standards and the gradual agreement that potential human subjects need protection in scientific research. Over time the research establishment have created numerous policies to try and better protect the rights of research participants.

Research misconduct also applies to the ethical and humane treatment of animals used for purposes related to research, development and education. Some misconduct in research is not so obvious and can be complicated to navigate, which include but is not limited to authorship. The Office of Research Compliance and Research Integrity Officer is available to assist in any inquiries, allegations of misconduct and generally provide guidance.
