Why does the title of my protocol have to match the title of the funding application?
The IRB coordinates its review with several other offices and must be able to link the research protocol with the funded project, where applicable. Therefore, the title of the research protocol submitted to the IRB must either (1) match the title of the funded project or (2) contain the title of the funded project in parentheses that follow the protocol title.
1. The research protocol and funded project can share the same exact title, as in “A Study to Determine the Safety of Drug A.”
2. The title of the research protocol can be followed by the title of the funded project in parentheses, as in “A Study to Determine the Safety of Drug A (UAB Drug Program for Hypertension).” This is usually the case, for example, in program project grants when many protocols are covered by one funded project. In most cases, each funded award involving human subjects must have its own IRB approval.
