Conflict of Interest Facilitating excellence in research at UIC What is financial conflict of interest? • “A ‘conflict of interest’ arises when an academic staff member is in a position to influence either directly or indirectly University business, research, or other decisions in ways that could lead to gain for the academic staff member, the staff member's family, or others to the detriment of the University's integrity and its missions of teaching, research, and public service.” • “Family" is defined as one's spouse and children. • Conflicts reside in a situation, and do not imply improper behavior.
