Note: PHS-funded investigators must disclose all Significant Financial Interests (SFI) related to their Institutional Duties, as defined by GIM 10.  FIDS will automatically link all existing SFI to any disclosure you created for a PHS-funded eGC1. A PHS eGC1 is one where either the sponsor or the originating sponsor is PHS. A list of PHS Sponsors is available. If you are creating a disclosure for a non-PHS eGC1, you will be able to indicate which of your SFI relate to the eGC1.
