Elizabeth McEvoy Returns to Three I's Research Integrity Conference to Lead Panel

Elizabeth McEvoy, Partner and Co-Chair of the Research Misconduct group at Barrett & Singal, was selected to present at The Three I's (IACUC, IBC & IRB): Research Integrity & Biosecurity™ Conference last week in their first fully virtual conference.

McEvoy's panel presentation, "Navigating Foreign Influence in the Lab: What institutions should know about disclosures, the 'China Initiative' and protecting US-based research" addressed foreign talent recruiting from China and beyond, the U.S. response to bio-smuggling, economic espionage, and other threats of foreign influence on U.S.-based research as informed by several noteworthy criminal prosecutions in 2019 and 2020. Additionally, she redefines "theft" and "influence" as it relates to research misconduct and how universities and institutions can protect themselves.

As a conference attendee and presenter, Attorney McEvoy enjoys participating and collaborating with other industry professionals: “The Three I’s IACUCs, IBCs, and IRBs … Biosecurity & Research Integrity Conference is a unique and innovative conference, and I am honored to be able to participate again this year. The Three I’s provides an interactive forum for practitioners, institutional officers as well as the government agencies involved in policing research to discuss recent changes and ongoing challenges to conducting effective and compliant research in today’s ever-changing landscape. It is truly a melting pot for those involved in research to come together and discuss how this area is constantly evolving and how to stay compliant.”
