Research Integrity Office

While the SickKids Research Institute (RI) grows and diversifies, integrity in research continues to be a focus. The SickKids Research Integrity Office (RIO) actively promotes the Hospital’s longstanding culture of research integrity, assisting the Chief of Research and the RI’s Senior Management Team in providing integrity education and resources to the organization.

The Research Integrity Advisor oversees inquiries and investigations, including appointing expert members to inquiry and investigation committees.

RIO Policy

The Research Integrity Office aligns with the Tri-Agency Framework: Responsible Conduct of Research, which outlines the policies and requirements related to grant application and management process, performing research, and disseminating results, as well as the processes that institutions must follow if there’s a breach in of one of the Tri-Councils’ policies.
