This website outlines policy intended to assist MIT researchers in applying and complying with MIT’s requirements regarding financial conflicts of interest in research.
Every researcher has an obligation to become familiar with, and abide by, the provisions of this Policy. If a situation raising questions of conflict of interest arises, a researcher should discuss the situation with MIT’s Conflict of Interest Officer or the Vice President for Research. The Vice President for Research is responsible for ensuring implementation of this Policy.
Note: The New PHS regulations go into effect on August 24, 2012, and apply to new awards issued after that date. Current awards will be modified to incorporate the regulations as funding arrives.
PHS includes the National Institutes of Health (NIH), among other agencies. Specifics regarding the PHS requirements are set forth in Appendix A of this Policy.
