Before beginning research at Tulane University, all research personnel must complete the CITI Training Program; this can be completed at:
Tulane University is currently seeking re-accreditation from the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc. (AAHRPP). Our AAHRPP site visit is scheduled for June 7, 2018 through June 8, 2018. The site visit will include interviews with researchers, research staff, IRB members and IRB staff, as well as various administrators and program directors that have been chosen by the agency. AAHRPP will provide a list of individuals that have been selected for interviews in advance, but reserves the right to contact other persons associated with the human subjects protection program during the site visit. Once we are provided with the list, we will contact the selected individuals to schedule interview preparations.
If a Data Use Agreement is required for your research, a centralized process is now in place. Please contact Rusten May, Tulane University Privacy Officer, at dua@wave.Tulane.edu with any questions.
If your study will be conducted within Tulane University Medical Center and/or Lakeside Hospital, please contact the SPA Office to obtain approval. Please contact Verna Lee email@example.com with any questions.
An Interdepartmental(IT) Form is required to be submitted to the Human Research Protection Office (HRPO) for Industry Sponsored Initial Submissions and Continuing Reviews. Please be sure to view IRB Fees in the Policies link to make sure your IT is completed correctly.
All Conflict Of Interest (COI) matters must be resolved before the IRB can approve a submission. This includes COI issues that relate to PIs, investigators, and key personnel.
The Conflict of Interest Form must be submitted to the General Counsel's Office and investigators should resolve all COI issues before making a submission to the IRB. In addition, researchers are required to comply with the revised Tulane University COI policy to complete and submit COI training via the CITI online training modules.
If you have questions, please contact Genean Mathieu, Administrative Compliance Specialist for the Tulane University Conflict of Interest Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (504) 247-1286 for guidance and/or clarification.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Biomedical IRB or Social/Behavioral IRB and want to contribute to research, please e-mail us at email@example.com or call us at 988-2665.
The guidance documents listed below were designed to assist you in your research. If any investigator or their research staff would like to schedule a meeting with the Human Research Protection Office (HRPO) staff to answer questions about prospective or ongoing human subjects research projects, IRBManager electronic submissions, or questions on IRB review requirements, please send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is a Form 310?
Form 310 is the former name for Assurance Identification/IRB Certification/Declaration of Exemption form required for human subject research activities that are conducted or supported by the Departments and Agencies adopting the Common Rule; the revised form is now referred to by the title of the form or by OMB# 0990-0263. It can be downloaded here.
