"I have to fill out a conflict of interest form for every doctoral student for whom I am advisor when they submit an IRB. The questions asked on the form are not relevant for this situation. It's a waste of time and irrelevant."

Investigators, as defined in the Conflicts of Interest & Commitment policy, are required to submit a Research Certification for each Research Project, both non-sponsored and sponsored.  OROI relies on the PI to make this determination.  “Who is an Investigator?” can be used to help determine if you are an Investigator.

 

For IRB protocols, the Human Subjects Protection Program has guidelines for who needs to submit a Research Certification - Investigator Roles & COI Disclosures in eIRB.  OROI happy to assist you in contacting them or you can reach out to them via email - vpr-irb@email.arizona.edu.
