Radioactive Materials Research Protocols

Overview: For those researchers who wish to use radiation producing machines or radioactive materials in their research, the Radiation Safety Program must review and subsequently approve that section of their research application.

For protocols and any other proposals where radiation producing machines or radioactive materials will be used, approval by the UAB Radioisotope Radiation Safety Committee's (RRSC) Sub Committee for Human Use (SCHU) must be granted for the radiation component of the protocol.

The UAB Institutional Review Board for Human Use (IRBHU) must have the aforementioned approval prior to IRB approval.

The following information may be required for submittal:
  • Human Subjects Protocol and any changes thereto
  • Informed Consent Form/Document
  • Information Naming the Radiopharmaceutical/Radioisotope and/or Radiation Producing Machine
  • Name of the Routine or Investigational Study
  • UAB Radioactive Materials Licensee(s) Performing or Participating in the Study
