• Investigator-Initiated Protocols

    Protocol Submission

    Protocol submission is a part of the IRB ePAS process. Learn more about submitting your protocol.

    Pilot Study Protocols

    Submission of a protocol as a pilot study is acceptable under appropriate circumstances. However, such a protocol should describe how the information from the pilot will be used for subsequent proposals. The investigator may choose to elaborate a tentative plan for study size, request resource approval for a pilot study, and then submit those preliminary data in the future to request the resources necessary to complete the study.

    Pilot studies often receive a lower priority; however, pilot studies that may lead to meritorious, extramurally funded protocols are given high priority.
