As a medical school that aspires to be world-class, LKCMedicine is committed to achieving excellence in research and scholarship. This pursuit demands that we adhere to the highest standards of integrity and ethics in all our clinical and non-clinical research endeavours. Honesty, transparency, and accountability are the foundations on which we conduct our research.
To maintain these high standards, we have developed the Good Research Practice framework. Our commitment to Good Research Practice was derived from our research community, for our research community. It spells out what the School – our faculty, postdocs, students, and staff – do to demonstrate and fulfill our commitment to ensuring the highest standards of integrity and ethics in all our work.
Our commitment to Good Research Practice describes the behaviours that underpin high-quality science, the robust evidence base for improving health and healthcare, and ensure public confidence in the research enterprise and the investment of public funds.
Good Research Practice is the shared responsibility of everyone in our research community. As researchers, we have responsibilities to our subjects, colleagues, and the wider society. As a School, we are responsible for fostering a culture that supports and embeds good research practice and thereby maintains the compact between science and society.
Only then can we make scientific advances that benefit one and all.
