New Requirements for Applicants for Public Health Service (PHS) Research Funding

New Requirements for Applicants for Public Health Service (PHS) Research Funding

Jun 26, 2012

In 2011, the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) revised its financial conflict of interest in research (FCOIR) regulations regarding research funded by it or its component agencies (e.g., the National Institutes of Health; see list [here]).  These regulations are effective August 24, 2012.

As a result, UNH will implement a new interim policy on August 24, 2012 to respond to these regulations. The interim policy will affect individuals who submit proposals for research funding to PHS agencies, and/or who may receive such funds, on or after August 24.  It may also apply to other organizations (e.g., American Heart Association) that require compliance with the PHS financial conflict of interest in research regulations.

Staff from the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Research (OSVPR) will hold an information session on the new requirements on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, 9:30-10:30 a.m. in Morse 401.  If you plan to attend, please register.  Another session will be scheduled in mid-September.  Anyone who has recently submitted a proposal for research funding to a PHS agency (or organization requiring compliance with the PHS regulations), or plans to submit a proposal in the near future, is encouraged to attend one of the sessions. 

A webpage containing information about the new requirements and the information sessions is available at /research/financial-conflicts-interest-research-projects-funded-public-health-service-phs.  Please contact Julie Simpson, Director, Research Integrity Services (603-862-2003) or Tammy Goldberg, Director, Finance and Administration (603-862-0152) with any questions.
