Office of Research, Innovation & Economic Development Workshop Descriptions (Summary)
Conflict of Interest for Deans and Department Heads

View Workshop Times
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), leadership role in managing potential conflicts, and resources at UT. The goal of the course is to provide Deans and Department Heads information and resources to help them meet their responsibilities as research leaders. For anyone 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 26. A Zoom link will be sent to registered participants prior to the workshop.

SThis is an instructor focused workshop and only faculty/staff or GTAs may enroll.
