NCCN ORP Conflict of Interest Policy

Integrity, objectivity, and absence of self-dealing are essential at all levels and in all aspects of NCCN’s activities, including those of the NCCN ORP. NCCN and its employees are committed to conducting themselves and their activities in accordance with the highest standards of integrity and ethics.

Members of the NCCN ORP scientific committees may face real or apparent conflicts of interest with grantors, investigators or institutions. The NCCN ORP has a Conflict of Interest Policy that sets forth principles and procedures to ensure that the personal financial and professional interests of scientific committee members do not compromise the objectivity with which recommendations for research and approval of projects are made. The NCCN ORP posts disclosures of scientific committee members on its website and provides appropriate oversight, limitations, or prohibitions in accordance with this policy.

This policy applies to all members of NCCN ORP scientific committees, including Scientific Advisory Boards, RFP Development Teams, Protocol Development Teams, Scientific Review Committees and any ad hoc committees with a scientific focus making decisions and recommendations related to NCCN ORP research projects.
