Signatures needed for IRB protocol submissions

March 19, 2012

Effective April 1, the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) will no longer accept unsigned protocol submissions for the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Any submissions received without a signature will be promptly returned to the principal investigator. Protocols or other submissions may be submitted electronically via email provided appropriate signatures are included. A hard copy of the protocol submission is not required.
