This chapter addresses conflicts of interest in research. Upon your completion of this chapter, we hope that you can identify what constitutes conflicts of interest, including financial, intellectual, personal, and time/work commitment conflicts, that impact responsible conduct of research. We also want you to learn about institutional and federal policies that serve to help researchers reduce, manage, and address conflicts of interest.
