If your human subjects research is funded or sponsored, Research Compliance Services (RCS) must ensure the research activities described in the grant/funding proposal have been approved by the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects/Institutional Review Board (CPHS/IRB). In order to avoid delays in awards set-up and access to funds, it is imperative that awards administered by Sponsored Project Services (SPS) be formally associated with an approved human subjects protocol.
- To associate funding during the initial review of the protocol, submit a Funding and Sponsorship Form and the human subjects portion of the grant proposal along with the Initial Review Application..
- To associate funding with previously approved, ongoing research, submit a Funding and Sponsorship Form and the human subjects portion of the grant proposal along with an Amendment Application. If the addition of funding alters previously approved human subject research activities, the Amendment Application must include the revised protocol materials. Any proposed changes to previously approved research must be reviewed and approved prior to conducting the research activities and before the award can be released.
