COI OFFICE

About us

The mission of the COI Office, established in February 2004, aligns with that of the Conflict of Interest Committee, and its work supports their functions and activities; the Office also addresses COI matters that are outside the jurisdiction of the Committee. A director (David Wehrle) leads the COI Office, and additional qualified administrative personnel handle and manage the day to day operations of the Office. They are accountable to the chair of the Conflict of Interest Committee (Dr. Craig S. Wilcox, Professor and Research Integrity Officer) and report to the Vice Provost for Research Conduct and Compliance (Professor George A. Huber).
