3  To promote objectivity in research by establishing standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, or reporting of research funded under PHS grants or cooperative agreements will be free from bias resulting from investigator financial conflicts of interest (42CFR50, subpart F)  To protect the integrity, trust and respect of UNM, its academic community and its research activities (UNM COI Policy E110) HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER

6  SFI is not synonymous with an FCOI  SFIs are financial interests the federal regulations and HSC COI Policy requires to be disclosed ◦ FCOI occurs when the COI Committee determines the SFI could directly and significantly affect (bias) the design, conduct, or reporting of the research ◦ If an FCOI is determined, the goal is to manage it such as:  Public disclosure (consent forms, publications, presentations)  Independent monitor  Restrictions in research activities  Reduction/elimination of financial interest ◦ Rarely have instances where it is unmanageable HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER
