Conflicts of interest (COI) have the potential to threaten the integrity of the university’s research, scholarship, instruction, and administrative functions. In addition, many external funders require recipients to adhere to a COI policy and investigators on their projects to meet COI requirements. Knowledge, disclosure, and management of potential conflicts are key elements to ensuring research integrity and protecting the professional reputations of researchers.
This one-hour virtual course covers topics such as: sponsor requirements, University Policy, what to disclosure (including examples), managing potential conflicts, leading by example, and resources at UT. The goal of the course is to provide Faculty the knowledge and awareness to help protect their research results and professional reputations, as well as to help them establish a compliance-friendly environment for those they mentor.
For Faculty required to meet Public Health Service requirements (including investigators on National Health Institute projects) this course supplements the online CITI course.
Participants must register NO LATER than 5 p.m. on July 16. A Zoom link will be sent to registered participants prior to the workshop.
This is an instructor focused workshop and only
faculty/staff or GTAs may enroll.
