All Investigators must complete an annual Research-Related Financial Interest Disclosure form. Investigators include University faculty and staff who have responsibility for designing research, collecting research data, performing other substantive research activities, or reporting research. Investigator includes the project director or principal investigator and any other person, regardless of title or position, who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of Research or Sponsored Programs which may include, for example, collaborators, consultants, students, non-paid volunteers and others. Research need not be funded for a person to be considered an Investigator. It is up to the PI to determine which research project personnel have responsibility for designing collecting or reporting research and are thus required to complete an annual Research-Related Financial Interest Disclosure.
