In keeping with its commitment to maintaining public confidence in research, University Health Network (UHN) has developed a Conflict of Interest of Research Personnel Policy, outlining processes for managing potential conflict of interests.
 
What is a Conflict of Interest?
A Conflict of Interest (COI) are activities or situations that place a person or institution in a real, perceived, or potential conflict between their duties or responsibilities related to research and their personal, institutional or other interests. A COI may include a significant financial interest.
