There is not enough information to determine whether this should be disclosed for conflict of interest review.  (e.g., Is it a UArizona grant?  Are you funded by a PHS agency or the Dept of Energy?)  Please contact OROI at coi@arizona.edu or visit our office hours (1st & 3rd Thursday, 2 pm – 3 pm; Connect via Zoom) for assistance.
