JEMF Advisory Group Disclosures

In an effort to significantly decrease the potential for COIs, JEMF has a policy that AG members may not serve as collaborators or key personnel on JEMF applications initiated during their tenure on the AG and for one year after their term ends.  JEMF-AG members should self-identify and disclose all potential conflicts of interest (COI) and decide whether or not to recuse themselves from review of each proposal. .  The JEMF-AG member may decide not to review the proposal, not to score the proposal, not be involved in the discussion, and/or not vote on the proposal. If the AG member is uncertain,  the decision will be made by majority vote of the JEMF-AG.  Conflicts of interest may include individuals who:

    • currently work at the same institution as the applicant
    • have a financial relationship such as a contract with the applicant
    • collaborated on a research project or paper completed in the past four years
    • worked in a supervisory capacity over the applicant in the past four years
    • other personal relationship that the AG member feels raises a conflict of interest
