*A conflict of interest exists if financial interests or other opportunities for tangible personal benefit may exert a substantial and improper influence on a researcher's professional judgment in designing, conducting, or reporting research. A conflict of interest is not an accusation and does not imply that a researcher's judgment has been compromised. The following types of situations describe conflicts of interest that should be disclosed in your presentation.

 

Ethical and Regulatory Requirements for Research

  • Research involving human subjects must have been conducted in accordance with the tenets of the Declaration of Helsinki and with adherence to any applicable national and local human subjects research requirements. Consistent with the National Institutes of Health guidelines, if the number of human subjects in the study exceeds three, Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval must be obtained. The authors cannot automatically assume that certain studies are exempt from IRB review. Only an IRB can determine if a specific study fulfills the exempt status. 

  • Research involving the use of animals must be conducted in accordance with international standards for animal treatment and care (e.g., the Society of Neurosciences and ARVO statements on the use of animals in research) as well as any applicable regulatory requirements. If the work submitted involves the use of animals, Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) approval must have been obtained. 

  • Failure to conform to the above ethical standards may result in loss of privileges for all listed authors to submit abstracts or proposals to subsequent meetings.
