The office team carries out UKRIO’s programme of work to support high quality and ethical standards in UK academic, scientific and medical research. It provides administrative, policy, research and technical support to the Trustees and Advisory Board, as well as liaising with the many organisations that subscribe to UKRIO. The team also co-ordinates the volunteer experts that support the work of the charity.
James is the Chief Executive of the UK Research Integrity Office. Joining UKRIO in 2006, he took up his current role in 2008, overseeing UKRIO’s transition to a registered charity supported by more than 60 universities.
He directs UKRIO’s work programme and leads its advisory service, responding to queries and concerns about research practice from researchers and the public. He helped develop UKRIO’s Code of Practice for Research and other publications, used by many leading research organisations.
James works with UKRIO’s subscribers to provide them with tailored support on research practice. He regularly speaks on how to sustain and enhance research integrity; recent audiences have included the Royal Society, the Nuffield Council on Bioethics and the Irish National Research Integrity Forum.
