The SOM Conflict of Interest Committee (COIC) works with the UNC COI Director to review individual COI disclosures from any SOM personnel. The committee is composed of faculty engaged in basic and clinical research. Part of the charge for the COIC is to ensure compliancy with the UNC COI Policy, the GA Policy and federal sponsor regulations. Disclosures are submitted online. The COIC meets the first Tuesday of the month. Please contact Joy Bryde, UNC COI Director, or Jennifer Brennan if you have questions about the policy or your disclosure. The SOM COIC and UNC Compliance Office will work with investigators to manage COIs as allowable within the regulations of the applicable policies.
Under the UNC COI Policy, everyone [faculty, trainees and lab staff] engaged in research at UNC must take the online COI training course. This training is required every 4 years.
