Conflict of Interest

Ethical Interactions with Industry


Appropriate ethical behavior requires adherence to well-defined policies to guide interactions between UTMB faculty, trainees, and staff and those who provide items and services necessary for the University to carry out its professional duties. Furthermore, it is important for our relationships with our patients, students, and the public that we be free of conflicts of interest, conflicts of commitment, and to the extent possible, perceptions of such conflicts. This policy is intended to guide interactions of all members of the UTMB community with employees of companies that promote and sell biomedical, scientific, or pharmaceutical products or services.
