Submission & Review Process

Submission & Review Process

Review Process
Deadlines for submitting new applications and amendment forms depend on the type of human embryonic stem cell (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 Embryonic Stem Cell Research Oversight (ESCRO)-approved existing proposals in which two or three core features might change, a new ESCRO application is required.

More about new applications […]

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.

More about amendments […]

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.
