Note: OPRS has updated the UIC informed consent templates to meet the requirements of the revised Federal Regulations (Common Rule). Effective immediately, the revised informed consent templates are to be used for all Initial Review submissions (including any new applications and in-process responses to modifications or deferrals). When preparing a Continuing Review or Amendment, refer to the table. Additionally, the Initial Review, Continuing Review, Claim of Exemption, and Determination applications, along with Appendix D and Appendix K, have been revised to reflect the Common Rule changes. Please ensure that you are using the most recent versions of these documents when preparing a new submission.
The Office for the Protection of Research Subjects (OPRS) provides administrative support for the review and approval of research protocols (experiments) involving humans and human embryonic stem cells (hES). We help ensure that regulations are adhered to for the protection and welfare of subjects, investigators, and the University. Before you conduct these types of research, please verify that you meet the training requirements and have your protocol approved by the designated committees.
