Research Integrity

The National University of Natural Medicine shall require the highest standards of quality, ethics and integrity in the conduct of scientific research by its faculty, residents, students and other affiliated investigators. The advancement of knowledge through research relies upon the trust of the scientific community and the public-at-large in the integrity of the scientific process. Unethical behavior in research is a breach of that confidence. For these reasons, the University considers research misconduct a betrayal of fundamental scientific and research principles, and shall promptly deal with all instances of possible research misconduct.

If you have any questions or concerns involving the integrity of research being conducted here at NUNM, Helfgott or elsewhere, please contact the NUNM Research Integrity Officer, Doug Hanes, PhD.
