IRB Member Conflict of Interest

IRB members, Human Subjects Division staff, and IRB consultants do not participate in the review of research for which they have a potential conflict of interest, except to provide information requested by the IRB.

This policy applies to all IRB-related actions regardless of the level of review, the type of review, type of research, or source of any funding. The policy and guidance are described fully in IRB Conflict of Interest (#503).
