COI Management Plans for Research

The COI Office centrally facilitates COI Management Plans (CMPs) for the following research at the University of Pittsburgh:

"Standard" and "PI-Exclusion" Categories

CMPs are divided into two primary categories which vary depending on type and value of an investigator's outside financial interest.

Review and Implementation Process

Learn more about the standard process followed by the COI Office to manage conflicts with animal and human subject research projects.

Human Subject Research

Review examples of CMPs for projects submitted to review and/or oversight by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Animal and Bench Research

Review an example CMP for all animal research projects and bench research projects funded by the PHS.

Data Stewards

Certain CMPs for bench, animal, and human subject research incorporate a data steward or data steward committee.
