Last August, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) charged a researcher with several crimes relating to their alleged failure to disclose support they received from outside the United States. The indictment is part of an effort by the United States government to track and monitor relationships between researchers using federal funds and foreign governments and institutions.
Enforcement actions are part of a broad, renewed government interest in research misconduct that recently led to a historic $112.5 million settlement between Duke University and the United States government.
Do you know what you need to do to comply? Join us for an information session that will explain applicable laws, reporting requirements, and the risks of noncompliance for disclosing various types of interests as part of the conflicts of interest (COI) disclosure process.
Attendance at this event is required for all LKSOM researchers and personnel involved in the responsible conduct of research.
Federal requirements that mandate that foreign sources of support be disclosed by researchers involved in projects that receive federal funding applies to all researchers, regardless of nationality or country of origin.
