PAPER APPLICATION: Determination, Delayed Onset Human Research


Delayed Onset Human Research (DOHR) is the UW term used to indicate that a federal grant or contract for human subjects research meets the federal regulatory criteria for allowing the funds to be released and used without exempt status or IRB approval. This is subject to the restriction that none of the funds may be used for human subjects research activities.

This multipurpose form should be used only with an explicit written request from a sponsor to request a new Delayed Onset Human Research determination, renew a determination, or close a determination.

This document is for use with paper-based applications only. Do not use with Zipline. HSD accepts versions from 3/27/2015 on.
