Prof. Michael Tsapatsis is a non-conflicted designee to whom students, trainees, etc. can turn should they have concerns. If a group member approaches Prof. Tsapatsis, he will have confidential conversations with them about their concerns and what they think would be the preferable path forward. If requested, he will first try to mitigate between the group member and the PI and, if needed, direct the case to appropriate personnel for further consideration.


These arrangements have been reviewed and approved by the Johns Hopkins University in accordance with its conflict of interest policies.
