Submitting documentation to the IBC for review is done in numerous ways. It's important to understand that an IBC Registration Form may be requested from the Investigator regardless of the type of research, but you will be subject to completing an IBC Registration Form in order to comply with NIH Guidelines.
In order for a project to be reviewed by the IBC, PI's must complete an IBC Registration Form and submit the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. This form is a declaration of all activities regarding your project that pertains to rDNA and/or the safety of such procedures. Whenever an addendum is required, PI's must submit an IBC Addendum Form.
All researchers will be required to submit an IBC Post Approval Status Form annually for continued compliance with the NIH.
If you are performing animal research, you will be required to submit an Animal Care & Use Protocol (ACUP) to the Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC). Submissions are done by visiting the KUMC Office of Animal Welfare (OLAW) website. Your protocol will automatically be sent to the EHS for review. If warranted, EHS will request that you complete an IBC Registration Form so that your protocol can be added to the next IBC Agenda and you will be informed as to the decision.
If you are performing clinical trials or human research, you will be required to submit your protocol to the Human Subjects Committee (HSC) that acts as the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Submissions are done by visiting the HSC website. You will also need to complete an IBC Registration Form - this form can be obtained by contacting the EHS Office at email@example.com. If warranted, EHS will add your protocol to the next IBC Agenda and you will be informed as to the decision.
If you are performing bench-top research involving rDNA technology, you must submit an IBC Registration Form to the Environment, Health & Safety Office (EHS) for review. This form is submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Investigators must be prepared to have a laboratory inspection or audit performed if deemed necessary per the NIH and other regulating authorities. The audits are designed to not disrupt research and are considered a vital aspect of regulation adherence.
