    Funding Disclosures

    While the academy and the public wrestle with appropriate institutional processes for responsible disclosure of research funding & support, mechanisms to manage risks associated with conflicts of interest, and models for public funding of research, I’m attempting personal disclosure imagined broadly.

    UC Berkeley provided definition of Conflict of Interest: > A conflict of interest is a situation in which an investigator’s outside financial interest(s) or obligation(s) (real or perceived) have the potential to bias a research project or cause harm to human subjects participating in a research project.
