I was a speaker at a national meeting for pancreatic cancer and recently had travel reimbursed by the meeting’s sponsor, American Association of Cancer Researchers (AACR) which is a non-profit. What do I need to disclose under GIM-10?

The disclosure requirements will depend on the type of research in which you are engaged.

PHS Funded Research:  If you are an Investigator for PHS Funded Research you will need to disclose the following:

  • Travel:  Professional societies and non-profit organizations are not excepted from the travel disclosure requirement.  The occurrence of this travel, including an estimate of the value of the travel, must be disclosed within thirty (30) days of the occurrence of the travel.
  • SFI: If the travel expenses and any compensation received for this activity total $5000 or more, you must disclose this SFI.  (This is in addition to the above travel disclosure.)

Non-PHS Funded Research: If you are an Investigator who participated ONLY in non-PHAS Funded Research, you will need to disclose the following:

  • SFI: If the travel expenses and any compensation received for this activity total $5000 or more AND relate to a proposed or ongoing research project, you must disclose this SFI.
