HuBMAP - Public Policy Requirements

NIH intends to uphold high ethical, health, and safety standards in both the conduct of the research it funds and the expenditure of public funds by its recipients. The public policy requirements specified in this section set many of those standards. The signature of the Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR) on the application certifies that the organization complies, or intends to comply, with all applicable policies, certifications and assurances referenced (and, in some cases, included) in the application instructions. The policies, certifications and assurances listed may or may not be applicable to the project, program, or type of applicant organization. This list is not intended to be comprehensive and other laws may be determined to apply generally to all NIH OT awards, or specifically to a particular award depending on the terms of the OTA.
