How to Report a Problem or Concern Regarding Research at Mount Sinai

If you have a problem or concern regarding a research project in which you or a relative are participating the first approach is usually to contact the principal investigator for the project. Every project at Mount Sinai has a principal investigator and their contact information is contained in the informed consent document. If you enrolled in a study, you should have been given a copy of that document, so you should have the investigators contact information.

If you do not have the contact information or you have contacted the investigator and are not satisfied with the response, please feel free to call the Program for the Protection of Human Subjects at 212-824-8200. You can be assured that anyone you speak with will hold your concerns in confidence if you so desire. All members of the PPHS including the directors are available to speak with you if you desire. The directors may not be in the office but will return your inquiries promptly. You may also use email addresses which can be found in the About Us section of this website.

We are here to protect those members of our community that participate in our research projects, Do not hesitate to call if you have a concern.

Research Integrity
As an institution, we are committed to the highest quality of research. If you have a concern about the quality or integrity of a research project (plagiarism, falsification of data, etc), Mount Sinai has a Research Integrity Program and a Research Integrity officer. Such complaints can be held with the strictest of confidentiality.
