Human Subjects

In addition to the Conflict of Interest Committee’s (COIC) reporting requirements, researchers engaged in human subjects research are required to report any related financial interest (RFI) to the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB’s definition of RFI and the IRB’s reporting requirements may differ from those of the COIC.

Conflict of Interest Forms:

The following information indicates the form(s) you must file with RCI related to your financial interests. Depending on the sponsor of your human subject research/study, you may need to complete and submit one or more conflict of interest forms as follows:

  •  Privately funded human subject research
    The PI must file a online Form 700-U AND all the Investigators on the project must sign a Form 800.  If a financial interest is identified on either of these forms, the Investigator with the financial interest must complete, sign, and submit a Supplemental Form.
  • PHS-funded human subject research
    If the study is sponsored by a PHS agency (or other entity that has adopted the PHS COI rules), all Investigators on the project must separately complete the PHS On-Line Disclosure and required training.
  • Government-funded (Non PHS) human subject research
    The PI must file a Form 800 AND all the Investigators on the project must sign the Form 800.  If a financial interest is identified on either of these forms, the Investigator with the financial interest must complete, sign, and submit a Supplemental Form.
  • Department-funded human subject research that is FDA regulated
    The PI must file a Form 800 AND all the Investigators on the project must sign the Form 800.  If a financial interest is identified, the Investigator with the financial interest must complete, sign, and submit a Supplemental Form.
