DISCLOSURE IN THE AGE OF INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION: NIH AND FBI DISCUSS THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL RESEARCH SECURITY Got questions for the National Institute of Health, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or a former U.S. ambassador about the future of research security?

Science and Security has become an important framework for protecting the future of open research at universities that accept US federal funding. Since 2016, UNC Chapel Hill has observed increasing attention on this topic from NIH and law enforcement. This discussion will examine what faculty need to know and do to be prepared for new rules and expectations from our federal funders and law enforcement partners.
