Conflict of Interest

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) reviews all researchers’ financial disclosure statements for any potential significant financial interests (SFI). A SFI exists when the Institution, through its designated official(s), reasonably determines that an Investigator’s SFI is related to research projects and could directly and significantly affect the design, conduct or reporting of the research. The OSP collaborates and meets regularly with members of Corporate Compliance, the IRB and Legal Department to review, evaluate and manage any SFI to ensure it is reduced or eliminated.
