  • The IACUC has been reviewing, and updating if necessary, the guidelines. One new guideline has been added, guideline #6 “Photos and Videos in Research Environments.” Please take time to review the new guideline, and any of the others that specifically apply to your research.
  • The IACUC has established a new policy for new protocol submissions. Once a PI has been sent their “modifications needed to secure approval” email they will have 90 days to address the stipulations and return a revised form. If the PI does not return a revised form within 90 days of the day the email was sent then the protocol will be cancelled/voided and the PI would be required to update the protocol (literature searches, AV consult, etc.) and submit as a new protocol submission which would start the review process over.
