Financial Conflict of Interest

The Texas A&M Health Science Center (HSC) Office of the Vice President for Research and the Texas A&M University Office of the Vice President for Research are coordinating our processes to implement the new federal requirements on financial conflict of interest (FCOI).  Faculty, staff, and students who are required to comply with these new requirements will soon receive notification through TrainTraq that they must complete FCOI training.  Information has been distributed to provide more information regarding the training and disclosure requirements.  Please continue to check back regularly as we continue to expand upon this important area of research compliance.
