Responsible Innovation

The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) is committed to enhancing our understanding of health and disease and developing new approaches for treatment, diagnosis and prevention. OHRI adheres to the highest standards of ethics, integrity and responsible innovation in all aspects of research, and recognizes its responsibility to provide an environment that supports and promotes the responsible conduct of research.

To that end, we have implemented the Responsible Conduct of Research Policy. This policy embeds the principles, practices and norms that govern the honest and ethical conduct of research in our administrative framework, and ensures that we comply with applicable government requirements in this area. For more information regarding the responsible conduct of research, please contract Sandra Watson at

We have also created a Conflict of Interest Policy, which outlines the standards to which we must adhere vis-à-vis relationship management. For further information, please contact
