If you are a JHU employee who has significant, personal investments (financial or otherwise) in organizations that are doing business with JHU, you may be subject to laws and regulations that restrict the type of involvement that you may have with those outside organizations as a JHU employee.
Effective January 25, 2018, the National Institute of Health (NIH) requires that all domestic, multi-site, non-exempt research studies utilize a single Institutional Review Board (sIRB). In order to comply, adjustments have been made to the Johns Hopkins University Policy on Individual Financial Interests and Financial Conflicts of Interest in Research.
The primary change has been to limit the application of the policy to JHU employed faculty and, staff and to JHU students engaged in research at JHU, and to modify the processes for communication of conflict of interest management plans to the relevant sIRB that is reviewing any human subject research protocols. Where another institution’s personnel are engaged in research that is being reviewed by a JHU IRB, the review of the potential conflicts of interest for that institution’s personnel is part of the local review from that institution.
