Conflict of Interest (COI)


There is a campus policy addressing financial conflicts of interest in human subject research.  If any member of the study team has a financial conflict of interest, it must be disclosed to the IRB.

If a COI exists, the COI Committee must review and provide a management plan to address the conflict of interest.  This management plan should be provided to the IRB, for each member of the study team that has a financial conflict of interest. The IRB may require that the existence of a potential conflict of interest be disclosed to participants on consent documents

For more information, please review the campus policy or contact the Conflict of Interest Program Specialists.
