    Certificates of Confidentiality

    Certificates of Confidentiality

    The people who volunteer to participate in NIH-funded research trust that the sensitive information they provide will be protected. To help ensure this protection, NIH issues certificates of confidentiality for awarded studies. Certificates of Confidentiality protect the privacy of research subjects by prohibiting disclosure of identifiable, sensitive research information to anyone not connected to the research except when the subject consents or in a few other specific situations. In this next installment of the NIH’s All About Grants podcast series, we delve into what you should know about certificates. Lyndi Lahl, a Human Subjects Officer within the NIH’s Office of Extramural Research, explains exactly what are certificates, when is disclosure of participant data allowed and when it is not, how to know if your study should have a certificate to protect participants, where to find a certificate associated with your study, and much more.
