As announced on February 21, 2014, the IACUC Protocol Application has been revised with a new version (labeled as “Version 3.1” in the lower left corner).

For all new and three-year-renewal submissions, the new version must be used.  New and three-year renewal submissions will not be accepted on older versions of the form after March 31, 2014.

HOWEVER, the new form should NOT be used for submission of modification requests:

For modification requests to an existing approved protocol, please request an editable version of your currently approved protocol application from our office by sending an email to IACUC@uci.edu. We will send you the current version of your protocol to revise. DO NOT rewrite your revised narrative on the new version of the protocol application .

If you have any questions about which form to use, please feel free to contact us at IACUC@uci.edu or by phone at (949) 824-8664 or -8984.
