FAQ: What happens if I have a research COI?

What happens if I have a research conflict of interest?

Conflicts of interest are common in research, especially in light of the increased support of University-Industry collaboration.  Conflicts of interest are not inherently bad and can exist as long as they are managed to protect the integrity of OSU research.  If you have a COI, the COI Officer and COI Committee will work with you to create develop appropriate institutional management to manage, reduce or eliminate the conflict.  If a conflict of interest cannot be managed, OSU research may not go forward.
