Providing support and assistance to faculty and staff related to the issue of undue foreign influences on research integrity.

The nation’s public research universities have a unique, long-standing partnership with the federal government conducting research on behalf of the American people. This research represents one of the nation’s greatest assets, which is why it is a target for foreign attack. The University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus is working to help protect against foreign interference, influence, and theft of research and the discoveries that come from it.

In recent months, several federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the U.S. Departments of Defense (DoD) and Energy (DoE), have expressed growing concerns about foreign influence on the integrity of research conducted in or for U.S. institutions.
