A program of continuing education and training in the protection of human subjects
is a federal requirement. We use our IRB listserve and specifically the Newsletters
to partially fullfill this mandate. Key personnel listed on each protocol are
required to receive and review information provided in this listserve. If at
any time key personnel lose their ability to receive these notices (based upon
return email notice), the principal investigator will be notified of the problem.
Those key personnel will be inactivated in our system until the problem has
been resolved. Of note, key personnel who have been inactivated in the IRB system
should not be participating in any research until they have been reactivated.
