I spent the first part of this week at a conference that ended up being a sort of “who’s who” in the research compliance/research integrity world. (OK fine, it’s less of a “world” and more like a neighborhood block party…with no libations…unless I’m going to the wrong meetings).
Quest for Research Excellence examined ways to break down silos among scientists, administrators, journal editors, government folks and attorneys in pursuing the responsible conduct of research. It was a joint effort by the Health and Human Office of Research Integrity, The George Washington University (GWU), and Public Responsibility in Medicine & Research.
Ropes & Gray attorney Mark Barnes, who’s a member of our editorial advisory board, led a number of sessions including a case study on engaging legal counsel early if there’s a research misconduct investigation. He also strongly recommended that everyone read a Bloomberg BNA Insights article he co-authored last summer called “Investigating Allegations of Research Fraud: Finality and Implementation of an Institution's Findings in Research Misconduct Cases.” I spotted Mark distributing copies of Bloomberg BNA’s Medical Research Law & Policy report, which I naturally supported and had to capture for our editors back at the office:
There were also some interesting sessions moderated by Heather Pierce, who just knows a lot of stuff about research policy (She’s the Association of American Medical Colleges’s senior director for science policy and regulatory counsel if you want to get super technical about it); Carrie Wolinetz, the National Institutes of Health policy director and acting chief of staff; and the inspector general for the National Science Foundation.
I have a couple articles covering this conference in our next issue of the Medical Research Law and Policy Report, including one on data sharing at NIH.
