Financial Conflict of Interest in Research

Update on UNH's Financial Conflict of Interest in Research Program

Since 1995, UNH has deployed a financial conflict of interest in research (FCOIR) program to protect the integrity of UNH's externally-funded research and the investigators who engage in this mission-critical activity.  The program’s goals are accomplished through identification and management of financial conflicts of interest in research.  Information about UNH’s FCOIR program, including links to policies, forms, and guidance, is available here.

UNH's Financial Conflict of Interest in Research Program

If you conduct externally sponsored research and you, your spouse/domestic partner or dependent children have a significant financial interest that could impact, or be impacted by, your research, then you must comply with UNH’s policies on financial conflict of interest in research (FCOIR).  For example, if you have an ownership stake in a company and your externally-funded research could benefit the company, this is a financial conflict of interest in research.
