Important Notice Regarding Pilots with Human Subjects Research

NIH requires prior approval of all pilot human subjects research. All pilot submissions must have IRB Protocol approved at the time of submission. A pilot cannot use an existing IRB protocol approval.

All pilot IRB protocol titles must match the title of the CTSA pilot application. All applicants will be required to submit proof of IRB Approval or proof of non-human subjects research at time of Pilot Application Deadline. Applications without IRB submission prior to the specified date will be administratively disqualified.

Applications must have IRB approval no later than the pilot application deadline. Projects that do not have full IRB approval by the pilot application deadline will not be considered for funding.

All projects involving human subjects, required to submit an IRB application, are strongly encouraged to meet with the CTSA’s Regulatory Affairs Manager, Rebecca Brito (505-272-9542) for consultation and planning purposes.

Refer to the RFA for further specific information.
