Conflicts of interest, whether financial or nonfinancial, can arise at pivotal points of the university’s mission to advance research through knowledge generation or acquisition and the transfer of that knowledge into a meaningful and valuable contribution for the benefit of society. Federal regulations, state laws and system regulations and policies, and university rules related to research conflicts of interest recognize that faculty may have financial interests in sponsors of their research and/or in entities with business interests closely related to their research. The term “conflict of interest in research” refers to situations in which financial or other personal considerations may compromise, or have the appearance of compromising, an investigator’s professional judgment in conducting or reporting research.
Faculty members must submit financial disclosure forms at the time of proposal submission for research funding, when research gift funding is received, and when an application for protocol is submitted for a clinical study. In those situations where a financial interest and possible conflict of interest are disclosed, each situation is reviewed by an independent substantive review committee. At Prairie View, that committee is the Institutional Review Committee formed by the vice president for research and graduate studies This website contains information regarding the Committee, the process, and the regulations, laws, policies, and guidelines that govern disclosure and conflict of interest.
