Amendments

  • Principal investigators revising a currently approved project must complete an Amendment form, revise the protocol and submit one copy of each to the IBC for approval. 

  • Changes involving modification of biological agents, significant procedure changes (including change of the responsible principal investigator), changes to personnel, or changes that increase the risk of the project and/or the biosafety level must be approved by the IBC prior to implementing the changes.

  • Once approved, the Committee will return a signed approval memo back to the principal investigator.

  • NOTE: If the amendment involves vertebrate animals or human subjects, additional review by other committees may be required prior to implementation.
