Human Subjects Division (HSD)


American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)—also known as the Stimulus Package or Recovery Act

Mar 23, 2009 at 4:25pm
UW researchers are already starting to hear from federal funding agencies that they will be receiving ARRA funding.  Because of the very tight time requirements associated with this funding, researchers should contact the Human Subjects Division (HSD) as soon as possible after being notified of the possibility of funding, so that the IRB review process can be responsive to the time requirements.  Do not wait until your IRB application is ready to send to HSD.  Here are the Instructions ARRA Stimulus-Recovery Funding to follow ASAP, to get you started. Contact Shannon Sewards by email at ssewards@u.washington.edu or by phone at 206-543-2254. A checkbox for ARRA funding has been added to each of the documents listed below on March 22, 2009 *: • Biological Specimens Review Determination Form (Page 5) • Center Program Training Grant Application (Page 3) • Human Subjects Review Application: UW 13-11 (Page 3) • Medical Records Review Form (Page 3) • Modification Form (Page 16) • Repository Application (Page 3 & 4) • Status Report - Renewal or Closeout Form (Page 4) *  The ARRA checkbox was the only change made to these documents on 3/22/09. The ARRA Cover Sheet is to be used with all IRB submissions for research funded by the ARRA. More information about the ARRA, including information about how to apply for the funding and how to administer these grants at the UW is available.
