New Website Focused on Disclosing
Foreign Relationships and Activities
The UAMS Office of Research and Innovation has created a new website focused on disclosing foreign relationships and activities. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recognizes research risks regarding peer review integrity, intellectual property and failure to disclose interests, and UAMS is committed to full transparency with external sponsors, industry and foreign entities.

This website will serve as an education resource for investigators to be able to:
•    Recognize a foreign component
•    Appropriately disclose a foreign component
•    Stay informed of UAMS institutional policies and educational opportunities regarding foreign relationships and activities
•    Stay informed of NIH policies and activities regarding foreign relationships and activities
