Conflict of Interest (in Research)

Outside financial interests can facilitate opportunities for innovation, collaboration, and support.   The Conflict of Interest Oversight Committee (COIOC) supports research and the pursuit of outside financial interests by reviewing financial disclosures required by Federal, state, and university regulations and policies to address those instances when the outside financial interests may bias or appear to bias the research.  In addition to promoting transparency and accountability, financial disclosures also protect the researcher’s interests by (1) meeting the requirements set by sponsors and the University; (2) having the COIOC, an objective third party, review the financial interests and the research; and (3) demonstrating a commitment to scientific integrity.
Conflict of Interest is also a compliance area that is a focus of the federal government's undue foreign influence concerns.  For more information about how everything relates, please visit International Research Activities and Engagement.
