Office of Industry Engagement and Conflict of Interest Office (“COI Office”)
Industry-academia relationships represent enormous opportunities but also present unique challenges. At Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (“ISMMS”), academia-industry relationships and the management of potential financial conflicts of interest (“COI”) are guided by rigorous adherence to the principles of transparency and accountability, which are intended to safeguard our core missions — the learning environment of our trainees, the scientific integrity of our research, and the clinical care of our patients. The Office of Industry Engagement and Conflicts of Interest (also known as the “COI Office”) supports successful academia-industry collaborations through development and implementation of policies, processes, and oversight plans that safeguard Mount Sinai research, education and clinical care.
