Purdue Histology and Phenotyping Laboratory Policies
For users who are themselves Purdue faculty or staff, confidentiality is already required by existing University policy. The University Policies on intellectual Property and on Research Misconduct establish that research and research data at Purdue is to be protected from intentional and unintentional disclosure. Thus, samples, products derived from samples, data obtained from the analysis of samples, and data and analyses obtained from a Purdue Histology and Phenotyping Laboratory (PHPL) user shall be considered confidential, and shall not be shared , published, reanalyzed, reprocessed, or in any other way shared, or used for additional analyses without the PHPL user’s express and written permission.
The relevant Purdue policies may be found at:
For PHPL users from outside of Purdue University, such as corporate partners, investigators from government, other universities, or any other type of institution, the same confidential treatment of research and data shall be applied in the PHPL. In this case, confidentiality is assured through execution of a confidentiality agreement with Purdue University. External users may contact Purdue University Contract Management Office at (765) 494-6210 or firstname.lastname@example.org , in the Sponsored Programs Office to begin this process. Assistance in establishing such agreements will be provided by PHPL personnel and/or the PHPL director.
