Conflict of Interest
Conflict of interest (COI) is a state where the public interest derived from the medical and healthcare research promoted by JSGE is in conflict with the personal interest of an individual member of JSGE that arises from university-industry partnerships, among others.
The Japanese Society of Gastroenterology (JSGE) conducts its projects by managing conflicts of interest.
If you are giving a presentation at a scientific meeting or contributing a thesis, please abide by the Policy on Conflict of Interest in Medical Research and the Detailed Regulations on the Implementation of the Policy on Conflict of Interest in Medical Research.
Please note that the Policy and Detailed Regulations on Conflict of Interest in Medical Research were partially revised as of January 2021.
