Conflict of Interest
COI Review Process
Each disclosure will receive an initial review where it will be reviewed for completeness by the COI Assistant. Disclosures with disclosable interests related to institutional responsiblities, will be reviewed by the full COI Committee. The committee conducts the review process in a manner that is intended to foster, not hinder research relationships.
If the COI Committee determines that the disclosed interest does not affect the research or that the interest does not compromise the commitments of the individual to UNM, and is not detrimental to UNM, the COI Committee can determine that no conflict exists.
If the COI Committee determines that the disclosed interest could influence the research, the COI Committee can determine that a conflict exists and a management plan is in order to manage, reduce or eliminate the potential or actual conflict of interest. The plan will be issued by the COI Committee and must be signed by both the investigator and the monitor.
Notification of committee decisions are sent via e-mail to the disclosing parties, PI, the investigator's Departmental Chair, and Director of the Center, as appropriate.
