Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI)
The federal Public Health Service (PHS) has adopted regulations (42 CFR Part 50 Subpart F and 45 CFR Part 94) on Promoting Objectivity in Research. These regulations describe the actions an individual and an organization must take inorder to promote objectivity in research. The regulations apply to all PHS funded grants, cooperative agreements, research contracts (but not Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research or Small Business Technology Transfer program grants). The regulations require that applicants for PHS funding (e.g., funding from the National Institutes of Health), prior to the application for PHS funds, disclose to the Food Allergy Science Initiative (FASI) any significant financial interests related to their institutional responsibilities at FASI.
