Animal and Bench Research

These COI Management Plans (CMPs) are used when an investigator is performing animal or bench research sponsored by or of commercial interest to a company in which they have a financial interest, and his or her financial interest(s) do not include one or more of the scenarios requiring PI-Exclusion.

Completing a Management Plan

Animal research management plans are distributed by the COI Office directly to conflicted investigators during the ancillary review process in ARO.

Bench research management plans for projects funded by the Public Health Service are sent to the conflicted investigator by the COI Office before account activation is approved at the Office of Sponsored Programs.

Final language contained in a CMP for a specific project may differ from the examples above due to regulatory requirements or University policy obligations.  Additional terms may be added at the discretion of the COI Committee and/or a department chairperson.  Final copies of animal and bench research CMPs are prepared by the COI Office and distributed via DocuSign or standard email directly to conflicted investigators for review and signature.
