Should the NIH require grantees to disclose researchers’ ties to pharmaceutical companies on their websites? The NIH says no:

The government decided to give research institutions a choice about disclosure, said Sally Rockey, director of extramural research for the institutes, said. The option of posting to a website or responding to a request “allows the institution maximum flexibility to decide which is the least burdensome way to achieve this,” she said.

“Some organizations may not have a website,” Rockey said.

Anyone who wants to disclose potential conflicts of interest but can’t due to lack of website should get in touch with me, and I’ll set you up with a free site on WordPress or Blogspot.
