+-Request for Project Modification Form

+-Project Continuation or Closure Form

To apply for a continuation of your protocol, the following application must be completed and received by the IRB Administrator a minimum of 45 days prior to the expiration date of your current approved protocol.

All continuing review applications are issued a new IRB number for the protocol and the previous IRB file is retired.  As many protocols undergo revisions and changes over the course of the approval period it is important that the IRB receive a comprehensive summary of the protocol going forward inclusive of any and all changes and revisions approved during the previous approval period.  Even if the research has not changed, a written summary protocol (full description of the research, tests, procedures, recruitment process, etc.) must be included with each continuing application. The application only provides a snapshot of the previous years’ efforts and provides an annual report of the research activity required under federal regulations. To supplement this report, a summary protocol of the research is required for all continuing reviews.   

+-Notice of Complication or Adverse Event Form

+-Informed Consent Forms and Instructions

The IRB will occasionally make recommendations or edits to consent forms received for review to assure wording is consistent with the protocol and for compliance purposes. 

In order for the IRB to process and approve your consent form in a timely manner we ask that you attach a version of the consent form in a Word compatible format separate from the application.  Consent forms imbedded within the protocol application or received as a pdf will be returned.
