Federal Demonstration Partnership Exempt Wizard

The Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) has created a relatively short smart form to test pilot the effectiveness of investigator determinations of exemption.

Studies that received an exempt determination will be randomly chosen, and the investigators will be asked to participate.

For more details see our eNews story.

The Protocol Office at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC) has agreed to continue to do the registration for UW investigators whose research is reviewed by the FHCRC IRB on behalf of the UW IRB.

REMINDER - The New Use of Identifiable Biological Specimens/Data Form is Here!

If you will be conducting research that only involves identifiable biological specimens and/or data, a substantially revised form with new guidance has been created titled: Use of Identifiable Biological Specimens/Data.  These have replaced the old "Medical Records Review" form and instructions.

We no longer accept the old Medical Records Review form.  For details read our eNews.
