Conflict of Interest

Effective August 1, 2012, the University of Massachusetts Medical School has implemented a Policy for Promoting Objectivity in Biomedical Research to comply with new federal financial conflict of interest reporting and training requirements. The new federal requirements are intended to promote objectivity in research by establishing standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, and reporting of sponsored research will be free from bias resulting from Investigator financial conflicts of interest.
