Bloodworks Research Institute
Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI)
Bloodworks Research is committed to ensuring its Members, Investigators and staff an open and productive environment in which to conduct research and patient care. Our concern with conflict of interest reflects the ever-increasing complexity of our society, our various relations with each other and with outside institutions, along with the heightened national and governmental sensitivity to such matters. Bloodworks full Conflict of Interest policy is located in Bloodworks’ Grants Policies and Procedures Policies, reference Policy 1003 with related procedures listed in 1003-1.
A Conflict of Interest Committee comprised of the Executive Staff of Bloodworks reviews disclosures that identify potential conflicts for the Research Institute and Bloodworks employees. Individuals under the purview of this Committee are Bloodworks employees that are “The project director or Principal Investigator and any other person, regardless of title or position, who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of research funded by the PHS, or proposed for such funding, which may include, for example, collaborators or consultants.”
Bloodworks’ Financial Conflict of Interest policy is effective August 24, 2012 and conforms with the 2011 Public Health Service (PHS) revised financial conflict of interest regulations (42 CFR 50). These regulations apply to any institution receiving funds from a PHS entity.
