Part 93, the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) seeks to support projects to conduct innovative research related to the prevention of research misconduct, protection of whistleblowers, and the furtherance of research integrity in this country and internationally.

3) Build on lessons learned through previous research and the experiences of those who have been involved in guiding research misconduct proceedings
4) Support the development of tools that can be used to more easily identify research misconduct in images and statistical results.
