Research Ethics

Arizona State University’s commitment to ethics training for researchers is realized in part through the Office of Research Integrity and Assurance (ORIA). ORIA schedules educational activities throughout the academic year. Additionally, the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics, the Center for Law, Science, and Innovation, and the Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes also provide resources and opportunities for enhancing responsible conduct, as do unit-based programs as in the School of Life Sciences. We work together with ORIA to sustain a culture of ethics throughout the knowledge enterprise.

The Center for Law, Science & Innovation is the first and largest academic center focused on the intersection of law with science and technology.
The Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes is an intellectual network aimed at enhancing the contribution of science and technology to society’s pursuit of equality, justice, freedom, and overall quality of life.
Ethical issues infuse the life sciences, biomedical research, and medical practice. ASU’s embedded ethicists in the life sciences address philosophical and pragmatic questions locally and globally.
The Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics promotes integrity, respect, responsibility, and service throughout the university and into the greater community.
The Office of Research Integrity and Assurance was established as a resource for investigators and the university as a whole to achieve and maintain ethical principles and compliance with federal, state, and university regulations governing research.
