Doing research in the European Union?  Check out the new regulation and institutional policy on the EITS website.  Call or email the Human Subjects Office for more information.

Investigators who will be seeking NIH support of clinical trial should review the new and pending NIH policies including: the NIH Definition of a Clinical Trial, the Requirements for Registering & Reporting NIH-funded Clinical Trials in requirements for Good Clinical Practice Training, and the Single IRB Policy for Multi-site Research. Please contact the Human Subjects Office ( or 706-542-3199) for more information.

Know your expiration dates! The IRB Portal is programmed to send reminder notifications but these are a courtesy and not a replacement for investigator project management tools. See more information about continuing review, expiration dates, and investigator responsibility on the Post-Approval and Reporting tab and the Investigator Manual on the Policies and Procedures web-page.
