Nora Janjan, MD, MPSA, MBA, who sits on the editorial advisory board for the journal ONCOLOGY®, spoke about her perspective titled, ‘Academic Promotion and Oncology Drug Development: Role, Responsibilities, and Integrity.’

In the article, Janjan explores the role conflicts of interests (COIs) play in research integrity and how individual investigators are upholding their end of the deal by practicing safe reporting of relationships with the industry. Her narrative complements a cross-sectional study of junior faculty at major academic cancer centers to evaluate patterns of COIs with years of clinician experience to determine if increasing COIs and industry funding correlate with greater academic success.
