Our office works with different units within the University when an employee’s outside interests potentially conflict with their University roles and responsibilities.
Research-Related Conflict of Interest
Federal law requires that, if you have responsibility for designing research, collecting research data, performing other substantive research activities, or reporting research, you must complete an annual Research-Related Financial Interest Disclosure Form disclosing any significant financial interests. You can find more information regarding research-related conflicts of interests including the definition of “significant financial interest” by reading the University’s Financial Conflicts of Interest in Research policy.
If you have any questions regarding research-related conflict of interest, please contact the University’s Office of Research Compliance.
