  • to ensure that decisions made by nih employees and investigators regarding grants, contracts, and other activities are based solely on scientific merit and the best interests of the public. The policy is designed to promote objectivity in research by preventing bias or undue influence from personal, financial, or other conflicting interests. This includes requirements such as public disclosure of financial interests related to your research activities, avoiding roles or involvement in research which could be reasonably perceived as a conflict of interest, and the exclusion of conflicted individuals from participating in the design, conduct, and reporting of research activities. Additionally, NIH enables supervisors and managers to be able to monitor their staff and make sure they are meeting all applicable conflict of interest policies.
