FAQ: Why does the University need a COI Policy?

Why does the University need a COI Policy?

Having a conflict of interest or the perception that a conflict of interest exists can harm the trust that the public has in the University and the research conducted by the investigators of the University.  COI policy is in place to protect you as an OSU investigator, the integrity of your research, and the integrity of the University research mission.  Furthermore, federal regulations require institutions to have such a policy in order to receive federal funding.
