Tip of the Week: October 28, 2016

Are you using data or samples from another institution?

Remember to attach a letter/ agreement from owner to use their data/ samples. This may be a letter or memo of understanding on Institution’s letterhead or an e-mail message with the name, address and role of the person giving permission. Attach as part of submission in IRB7. IRB review cannot proceed until the letter/ agreement is received.
