On 27 September 2013, as part of her AHRC Fellowship ‘Judging the Medics’ Science‘ Dr. Marie-Andree Jacob hosted a stakeholders workshop on research integrity and misconduct, at the headquarters of the Medical Research Council in London.
Participants included representatives from the Medical Research Council (MRC) the Health Research Authority (HRA), the charity Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the General Medical Council (GMC), the UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO), the Wellcome Trust, and Medico-Legal Investigations Ltd.
