Conflict of Interest Program

The primary responsibility of the USF COI Committee is to review COI disclosures of investigators who conduct USF System Research (human subjects, animal and basic science) and to develop management plans with safeguards to ensure that the financial or personal interests disclosed by those investigators will not bias the design, conduct or reporting of the research.
