- All research projects must be approved before investigators may begin any aspect of their project.
- All UM-Flint research projects must be submitted through an electronic software program known as the eResearch Regulatory Management System (http://www.eresearch.umich.edu/).
- All research in which a UM-Flint faculty or staff member or student or other trainee is the principal investigator and all research using UM-Flint facilities or private information should be reviewed and, if approved, monitored, by IRB-Flint.
- Occasionally, given the nature of the research or location of subject recruitment, a project may require review by a University of Michigan IRB other than IRB-Flint. Investigators who believe this situation may apply to their project must contact IRB-Flint before submitting an application.
