Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce the July 1st, 2012 UC system-wide roll out of
the UC IRB Reliance Registry http://irbreliance.ucop.edu/ , a new
on-line application designed to facilitate the approval of human
subjects research to be conducted under the UC Campuses MOU. The UC MOU
allows human subjects research to be reviewed by one UC IRB rather than
submitting for IRB approval at each UC campus where the research will
take place.

A UCI investigator may request that another UC IRB review his or her
application if the research:

* Will be a collaborative or multi-site effort involving two or
more UC locations;
* Involves obtaining individually identifiable data or samples
from two or more UC campuses, on which one or more other UC campuses
will conduct analyses; and/or
* Involves obtaining biospecimens for research subject to FDA
regulations

Instructions on how to register and work with the new UC IRB Reliance
Registry are available here
http://www.research.uci.edu/ora/hrpp/irbrelianceregistry.htm . For
more information on the requirements for utilizing the UC IRB Reliance
Registry http://irbreliance.ucop.edu/ and the procedure for
researchers at UCI please see the UC Campuses MOU
http://www.research.uci.edu/ora/hrpp/ucmou.htm webpage.

Protections staff. http://apps.research.uci.edu/orastaff/staff.cfm
