RAD 2022 is virtual again.
Submissions open January 3rd, so consult with IRB/IACUC by December 21st.
RAD week is March 21 to March 25.
Compliance reviews for IRB or IACUC require that investigators plan well ahead of any deadline for grant submission, degree requirements or presentation deadlines to assure that their project has appropriate regulatory reviews and approvals well in advance. Add in the impact COVID-19 has on staffing demands and performance, as well as the reviews of existing pending non-RAD research protocols. Thus, it is imperative that all researchers understand that, if you do not already have IRB or IACUC approval for your RAD-related project, there is no guarantee that protocol approvals can be obtained in time for meeting other RAD deadlines, even if the protocol application is submitted by December 21. As always, your professionalism and commitment to our HSC Values is appreciated during this period.
