Conflict of Interest for Graduate Students

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 and disclosure are key elements to ensure research integrity.

This one-hour virtual course provides Graduate Students an overall understanding of COI requirements and the importance of following requirements to ensure research integrity. Topics covered will include sponsor requirements, University Policy, what to disclosure (including examples), managing potential conflicts, handling tricky situations, and resources at UT. The goal of the course is to provide students the knowledge and awareness to help keep their research results above question and keep their careers on track.

For students 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 19. A Zoom link will be sent to registered participants prior to the workshop.
