Conflict of Interest
The University of Nebraska – Lincoln Conflict of Interest in Research Policy has been updated to reflect significant changes that the University of Nebraska Board of Regents made to the systemwide conflict of interest policy in 2010, as well as conflict of interest revisions finalized by the Public Health Service (which includes the National Institutes of Health) in August 2011. The UNL Conflict of Interest in Research Policy is effective August 24, 2012.

Disclosure of interests takes place through NUgrant via the Interest Reporting Form (IRF). This form makes it easy for faculty, staff and students to report any outside interests related to their research. Interest reporting is completed annually and the IRF can be updated at any time throughout the year.
