At this time, NIH is considering new requirements related to reporting on sexual harassment perpetrated by agency awardees. A working group is expected to provide recommendations to the agency at a meeting later this month of the NIH Advisory Committee to the Director.
Adding to the conversation is a new paper published in Science.
Until any recommendations are approved, and implemented, current requirements apply in this regard. As NIH states, awardee organizations are required to have “systems, policies, and procedures in place to manage research activities in accordance with our standards and requirements” and to comply “with federal laws, regulations, and policies protecting the rights and safety of individuals working on NIH-funded projects.”
