Conflict of Interest
Federal regulations require the University to manage any potential conflicts of interest through an appropriate management process which is initiated and generally resolved through disclosure. Please access the WVU+kc portal to create or update your Conflict of Interest in Research Disclosure.
Conflict of Interest in Research Disclosure
Members of the WVU research community designated "Investigators" are required to file a disclosure at least annually, and on an ongoing basis within 30 days of discovery or acquisition of a new financial interest. Further, Investigators should review and make any necessary revisions to a disclosure:
- With each new, continuation, or revised grant or contract application submitted to the Office of Sponsored Programs,
- Before submitting each new protocol involving animal or human subjects, and;
- When there is a new or previously unrecognized financial interest not previously reported.
Please access the WVU+kc portal to create or update your Conflict of Interest in Research Disclosure.
Conflict of Interest in Research Training
Those named as a WVU Investigator are required to complete Conflict of Interest in Research Training every 4 years. We no longer utilize the CITI Conflict of Interest course to facilitate the training requirement. The training requirement has been built in to the disclosure process and can be completed by simply following the instructions found on the first page of the disclosure described above.
