Protocol Submission and Reviews

The IACUC currently requires one protocol for each grant award, and reviews these protocols on a monthly review cycle. Important tips to remember:

  • New or transferring investigators without a BlazerID should contact the IACUC office for copies of the necessary forms.
  • The monthly submission deadline is the 21st of the month or next business day if on a weekend or holiday.
  • Copies of grants are no longer required for protocol submission. If these documents have not been uploaded to the IRAP system, the office may request a copy of your final grant proposal.
  • Answer all questions from the IACUC office as quickly and completely as possible to avoid additional delays.
  • If you have difficulty meeting a deadline or answering a particular question, please contact the IACUC office so that we can assist you.
  • If you have training or enrollment  requirements they must be completed prior to approval, but do not have to be completed in order for you to respond to review questions.
  • Submit paperwork to other administration offices, e.g. Occupational Health and Safety, as soon as possible to avoid delays.
  • If you are approved with stipulations, you will not be able to order animals until those stipulations are lifted.
