  • As part of the new regulations, training is required for all researchers. This training will be part of the annual COI form and offered in person throughout the summer and fall.
  • The new research-related COI form will be available in early August 2012. An email will be sent out to inform faculty and researchers when it becomes available.
  • If you are an NIH funded researcher, after August 24, 2012 your proposals will not be submitted until you have completed the annual 2012-2013 research-related COI form and required training.
  • If you have any questions or would like to schedule training for your department please contact: for IUPUI and regional medical centers for Bloomington and regional campuses
