About Integrity and Compliance 

The Research Integrity & Compliance team reviews, approves, and oversees the non-fiscal component of all human subjects research conducted at HPHCI. Our mission is to protect the rights and welfare of research participants and to provide administrative support to the HPHCI research community. The team oversees compliance matters pertaining to public health surveillance as well as research, including, but not limited to, conflicts of interest, export controls, intellectual property, IRB operations, research integrity, and the quality assurance/quality improvement program. The research integrity and compliance annual work plan sets forth the compliance structure for developing and implementing the various program goals and includes metrics tracking to improve performance, efficiency, and research support.
