Investigators who are involved in research sponsored the Public Health Service (PHS) at UMBC are required by updated federal regulations to receive FCOI training before the beginning of any new research award (grant or contract) or before the beginning of any new fiscal year of an existing award, with a budget period starting on or after August 24, 2012.
The training discusses the new PHS regulations, the policies and procedures at UMBC for implementing the new regulations, and investigators’ responsibilities for disclosing financial conflicts of interest.
The Office for Research Protections and Compliance (ORPC) provides two venues to meet this requirement. Online training modules, available from CITI, may be accessed at http://www.umbc.edu/research/ORPC/CoI_training.html. The ORPC is also offering in person presentations to satisfy this requirement.

Business managers, administrators or researchers who are not involved in PHS-funded research and interested other individuals are welcome to register for the training.
