PHS Funded Research
New federal regulations regarding financial conflicts of interest have just been issued by the Department of Health and Human Services, and govern research funded by the Public Health Service (PHS). These changes will have an impact on both PIs and the institution, and the Division of Research Affairs, the SDSU Conflict of Interest Committee, faculty, and the Foundation have worked together to revise SDSU’s conflict of interest policy for PHS funded research, and to revise the financial interests disclosure form.
Our new policy and those forms:
Just a quick reminder that if you are receiving or have applied to receive PHS (NIH) funds, you still need to register for an upcoming Conflict of Interest training. This is a new training that is being required by PHS. Please remember that if you do not complete the training by December 15, 2012, PHS may delay the release of funding on your grant. If you do not have any active PHS agency grants/projects but have a proposal pending, you are welcome to attend one of the training so that there will be no delay in the event that the proposal is funded.

NIH also offers a table summarizing the significant changes between the prior 1995 regulation and the new 2011 regulation.
