Submission & Review Process

Review Process

Deadlines for submitting new applications and amendment forms depend on the type of hESC research you are conducting. For more information about deadlines and the review process, go to New Applications.

New Applications

For new proposals or for ESCRO-approved existing proposals in which two or three core features might change, a new ESCRO application is required.

Note: Principle Investigators (PIs) with existing hESC research protocols have until 3/31/2009 to submit a new ESCRO application.

Amendments to Existing Applications

The two types of amendments to an ESCRO application, significant and not significant, involve different levels of oversight by the ESCRO committee.

Annual Surveys and Renewals

Renewals require ESCRO review and approval. The standard approval period is three years. Annual surveys do not require ESCRO review and approval. The ESCRO office sends annual surveys to researchers to confirm information on record.
