COI - Conflict of Interest

The HRPP is committed to protecting the public's trust that the research supported by the HRPP is conducted without prejudice and with the highest scientific and ethical standards.Our beliefs are to strengthen the existing regulations regarding the management of financial conflicts of interest which is key in ensuring the public that LSUHSC is taking a stringent approach to managing the essential relations between the government, federally-funded research institutions, and the private sector.

What is Conflict of Interest?

LSUHSC-S Chancellors Memorandum-23 is our policy for carrying out this obligation. Please refer to SOP's HRP-055 (Financial Conflicts of Interests) and HRP-054 (Institutional Conflicts of Interests).
