Public Health Service (PHS) refers to agencies of the Public Health Service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and any of their components. The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are three PHS components that are often involved in academic research.
If an Investigator engaged in PHS-funded research has disclosed a significant financial interest, the University will determine whether the significant financial interest constitutes a financial conflict of interest in order to comply with the Code of Federal Regulation 42 CFR50, Subpart F “Responsibility of Applicants for Promoting Objectivity in Research for which PHS Funding is Sought.”
