With stories of scientific and clinical misconduct becoming more prevalent, it is important for any organization conducting research to be at the forefront of the broader compliance landscape. As research misconduct investigations continue to shift from quiet, disciplinary matters into major, federal white collar litigation under the False Claims Act (FCA), the intersection between these two legal regimes is becoming an increasing area of focus. The challenge for any institution that obtains federal research funds is to identify when scientific error or misconduct is serious enough to begin a parallel inquiry into possible FCA violations. Using a case study format, this session will discuss how research integrity fits within the broader corporate compliance environment and the important elements that should be put into place. This session will help attendees: Identify the basic elements of a compliance program for research integrity. Establish preventive measures to avoid or, at a minimum, discover potential misconduct early. Understand how to distinguish scientific misconduct from fraud and federal false claims. Gain an appreciation for the changing environment, including the increasing involvement of the Department of Justice.
