Statement of Research Integrity

The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute is committed to achieving excellence in research. The pursuit of pioneering research and the fulfilment of our responsibilities to participants in research, research users and the wider community requires the maintenance of the highest standards of integrity and ethics.

To maintain the high standards of research practice at the Institute, members will uphold the commitments outlined in Universities UK Concordat to Support Research Integrity.

Policies relating to research integrity 

We follow CRUK’s Research Integrity Policy and Guidelines for Scientific Conduct, and as part of The University of Manchester, we adhere to its Code of Good Research Conduct, which sets out a commitment to research integrity and the expectations of those who conduct research at the university. As part of the University, we are also subscribers to the UK Research Integrity Office

Guidance for researchers

To embed a culture of good research practice, the Institute provides training and advice to research staff on the importance of integrity and rigour in all research undertaken and to ensure that all researchers are aware of their obligations with respect to proper scientific conduct. To facilitate upholding these standards, the Institute has a Research Integrity Officer and a Research Integrity Committee, which is responsible for reviewing primary research papers and reviews prior to submission.
