Two changes to the routing of IRB correspondence, effective immediately:
1) Co-Investigators will now be copied on all IRB-related correspondence automatically, in addition to Principal Investigators and Faculty Advisors. Other members of the research team (e.g., Study Coordinators, Regulatory Associates) can still be added to the copy list, optionally, as currently done.
2) Department heads will be copied on determinations that a project is “Not Human Subjects Research” (NHSR). While these activities do not require IRB approval, they may still raise concerns and/or warrant departmental oversight.
