At Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM), we recognize that conflicts of interest (COI) and commitment can arise from our research endeavors. It is our mission to understand and assess how the many facets of our employees, students, and trainees' lives - including their professional activities and personal interests - may interact with their engagement in research and clinical work here at WCM.
We are also committed to our continual monitoring of how WCM's various interests - including financial commitments, intellectual properties, and personal engagement of our officials - may give rise to institutional conflicts of interest related to our research and other activities.
The WCM Conflict of Interest Office is responsible for implementing the policies and processes related to these areas, along with partnering offices and committees across the Institution. The Office seeks to be a resource to all individuals and units across campus as they navigate multiple responsibilities and activities, particularly related to sponsored and human subjects research. The goal is to manage all relationships appropriately, pursuant to the applicable Institutional policies.
