Integrity in Science

Scientific Integrity is essential to developing sound science that benefits society. 

ILSI believes researchers from academia and the public and private sectors can and should work together on science and health issues of common interest or concern. Public-private collaboration – where all interests, conflicts and biases are declared and all funding is acknowledged – can improve the science used to promote the health and safety of the public and the environment.
