University Rationales for Research Relationships
With Industry
Responsibility to serve the public by supporting
transformation of research results into
innovative solutions for societal
problems Unique scientific, technical and/or
financial resources of industry partners Desire
of faculty members to engage in commercialization

Ethical Challenge In research collaborations, how
do universities serve the legitimate interests of
their industry partners, their faculty, and
the public while maintaining a reputation for
objectivity and integrity? Vulnerabilities Facul
ty conflicts of financial interest or time
commitment External Pressure on Universities to
Prevent Faculty Financial COI is
Increasing Highly-publicized financial COI
(FCOI) by clinical investigators (e.g. ref. 1)
have led to more stringent federal
regulation New federal rules aimed at promoting
objectivity in research will expand the number
of researchers required to disclose FCOI, lower
the threshold, and require 1) timely public
disclosure of detailed information, 2) more
detailed management plans, and 3) mandatory
training of investigators Current best
practices for FCOI may not be as effective as
generally believed1,2 Divestiture/recusal is too
difficult to implement Disclosure of a COI is
ineffective in changing behavior Management
plans that are practical are too
unsophisticated
