The Office of Research Integrity, The George Washington University (GWU), and Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research are pleased to co-sponsor the 2017 Quest for Research Excellence Conference.  The event will be hosted by GWU. 
 
The goal of the Quest for Research Excellence conference series is to fuel knowledge sharing among all the parties involved in promoting the responsible conduct of research and scientific integrity, from scientists to educators, administrators, government officials, journal editors, science publishers and attorneys. True to this ambition, the theme of the 2017 conference is “breaking down the silos”. The conference will focus on five topics from the perspectives of various stakeholders. These topics include research misconduct, the responsible conduct of research, the legal implications of research misconduct, scientific publications and open science. Each of these topics will be the focus of a 90-minute plenary session led by a panel of world-renowned experts. Breakout sessions will give participants an opportunity to discuss cross-cutting topics in small interdisciplinary groups. 
 
We are pleased to announce that Sir Philip Campbell, Editor-in-Chief of Nature publications, will be delivering the keynote address.
