Proposed Significant Changes to an Active Protocol

Proposed significant changes to an active protocol must go through the same protocol approval process as described for the new protocol submissions. 

Protocol Renewals and Annual Review of Active Protocols

At the end of each year all investigators with active protocols will be asked to confirm that their protocols are active and that no changes have been made without the review and approval of the IACUC. Every three years, there will be a complete new review of the IACUC protocol using all the criteria for initial review.
