Conflict of Interest
The University is committed to conducting the highest quality research. This commitment requires an unwavering commitment to research objectivity. The Conflicts of Interest Committee (COI) considers financial disclosures made by investigators and key personnel who have significant financial interests related to their research and recommends to the Vice President of Research how the conflict should be managed, reduced or eliminated.
A COI investigator is any individual, regardless of title, role or position, who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of research on a proposal to a relevant federal agency/under a relevant solicitation.
