Conflict of Interest, Industry Sponsored Research and Data Use Agreements

Conflict of Interest

All Conflict Of Interest (COI) matters must be resolved before the IRB can approve a submission.  PIs, investigators, and key personnel are required to complete and submit the CITI COI mini course training.  Tulane University’s Conflict of Commitment and Interest Policy requires all full-time/part-time compensated Faculty/Staff members, as well as Investigators/Key Personnel (regardless of affiliation) participating in research, to submit the Conflicts of Commitment and Interest Disclosure of Information Form (COI Disclosure Form) on an annual basis.  If you have questions, please contact the Administrative Compliance Specialist for the Tulane University Conflict of Interest Committee, at or (504) 247-1286.
