What's New at the IRB?

Changes in ICF/HIPAA Template (version 10/17/2017)

News About NIH-Funded Human Subjects Research
Effective October 1, 2017, all NIH-funded research meeting certain criteria, that was commenced or ongoing on or after December 13, 2016, is deemed to be issued a Certificate of Confidentiality (CoC) via a new NIH policy. (Previously, researchers had to proactively apply to the NIH for a CoC.) If your study has newly been granted a CoC as a result of this change in policy, please view the latest IRB Update for more information on necessary action to update study subjects with the CoC consent addendum, also available in Spanish.
