The IACUC Approval Letter is the letter showing the protocol used for the study was approved by the IACUC.
The IRB Determination Letter includes an approval letter or other type of determination (Exempt, Not Human Subjects Research) from the IRB.
If you do not have a copy, please contact your mentor or advisor to determine if they are needed.
To prepare for your RAD submission, please reach out to the appropriate research compliance office (IACUC for animal research at IACUC@unthsc.edu -or- NTR IRB for human subject research at NorthTexRegIRB@unthsc.edu) to ensure you have appropriate approval for your research project before submissions open. You have until December 16, 2022 to ensure your project has approval or has been submitted to the appropriate committee for review/approval.
A reminder to please plan appropriately for your RAD-related project as there is no guarantee that protocol approvals can be obtained in time for meeting other RAD deadlines – thus, we recommend reaching out to either the IACUC or the IRB (as appropriate) as early as possible.
