PHS Investigators

PHS Investigator Training Requirements

Before engaging in research related to any PHS-funded grant and at least every four years, each Investigator will complete training about Investigator responsibilities under PHS and UNT requirements relating to disclosure of Financial Conflicts of Interest. This training must also be completed immediately when any of the following circumstances apply:

  • When UNT revises its financial conflict of interest policies or procedures in any manner that affects the requirements of Investigators; 
  • When an Investigator is new to UNT; or
  • When UNT finds that an Investigator is not in compliance with UNT’s financial conflict of interest policy or procedures or management plan.
