Public Access Requests

PHS COI regulations require that the Institution ensures public accessibility of information concerning any significant financial interest disclosed to the Institution that meets the following three criteria:

  1. the significant financial interest was disclosed and is still held by the senior/key personnel on a PHS-funded research award;

  2. the Institution, upon review, determined that the significant financial interest is related to the PHS-funded research; and

  3. the Institution determined that the significant financial interest is a financial conflict of interest (FCOI).

Brown University complies with this mandate by providing any requestor with the requisite information within five business days of a request.  To make a public access request, please send an email to
