Conflicts of Interest

Institutional Conflicts of Interest in Human Subjects Research

The UGA Human Research Protection Program is committed to maintaining objectivity in the research enterprise, avoiding even the appearance of impropriety and ultimately protecting human subjects.

The policy requires the annual disclosure of significant institutional financial interests by institutional leaders and quarterly disclosures by the institution. The Office of Research Integrity and Safety reviews these disclosures, provides relevant disclosure details to the Human Research Protection Program, and assists in the review and management of institutional conflicts of interest in human subjects research activity.
