To promote ethical behavior and regulatory compliance, UCSF has a chancellor designated Ethics and Compliance Board that oversees ethics and compliance on campus.
To support the Ethics and Compliance Board, six formal committees with responsibilities for ethics and compliance activities will report periodically to the Ethics and Compliance Board.
The six formal committees are:
- Data Security Compliance Committee
- Internal Audit Committee
- Investigative Group Committee
- Research Compliance Committee
- Ethics Committee
- Clinical Enterprise Compliance Committee
Integrity of Research Notice
Reporting Allegations of Research Misconduct
Quality research requires adherence to the highest standards of integrity in proposing, conducting and reporting research. Report suspected Research Misconduct (Fabrication, Falsification and/or Plagiarism) to the UCSF Research Integrity Officer, Dr. Elizabeth A. Boyd, Associate Vice Chancellor, Ethics and Compliance (email@example.com) or (415) 476-1825.
Individuals should not undertake investigations of suspected Research Misconduct on their own; the Office of Ethics & Compliance is responsible for evaluating and investigating all allegations of misconduct related to research at UCSF.
