Institutional Review Board

Completing Your Research Study

Do I need to notify the IRB when I complete or terminate my research protocol?

Yes. The completion or termination of a research protocol is a change in activity and must be reported to the IRB. Please fill out and complete the Research Completion FormPDF at the close of your study. You will need to attach an abstract summary of your study along with the form.

Please submit the Research Completion FormPDF and your Abstract Summary to your Principal Investigator, who will submit it to the Chair of the IRB, Dr. Kim Tolley,

A final report to the IRB signifies the closure of all files and provides information that may be used by the IRB in the evaluation and approval of related studies.

NOTE: Closure of a study means that no further data collection will be performed.
