Blood Draw for Research

New England Research Subject Advocacy Group
A blood draw is a way to collect blood for lab testing. Sometimes a blood sample is taken by placing a needle into a vein in your arm, usually near your elbow. Other times, a small needle may be used to prick the fingertip and collect a few drops of blood. The amount of blood drawn depends on the types of tests being done.

Conflicts of Interest (COI) in Research

New England Research Subject Advocacy Group
A conflict of interest, or “COI,” may exist when professional judgment or actions could be influenced by a private or personal interest, resulting in personal, financial, or professional gain. Participant safety may be influenced by a tendency on the part of the investigator to want a favorable outcome.
