- Principal Investigators or their delegates must submit the IF form in Sinai Central.
- All study investigators must be listed on the IF form. Refer to the GCO Investigator and PPHS Investigator definitions.
- Sinai Central generates a notification email to all study investigators requesting the submission of the FCOIR.

Financial Conflict of Interest in Research (FCOIR)

Failure to complete FCOIR Forms in a timely manner will DELAY research projects. The IRB and GCO will not accept applications until ALL FCOIR Forms are completed.
