Research Administration (SPRA) strives to ensure the university is in compliance with the complex web of regulatory requirements that govern research. We promote an understanding among faculty, students and staff of the requirements they must complete in conducting research. Please feel free to contact us with questions about any of these policies or regulations.
Any researcher who receives PHS funding under one or more of their agencies including but not limited to NIH, CDC, FDA, HRSA, or NIH must certify that they do not have a Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) in their PHS-funded research or utilization of PHS funds. In addition, anyone working under a PHS-sponsored project must complete FCOI training. The university provides training through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative at the University of Miami.
