The following forms and templates should be used to submit your research to the IRB. (ADA Compliant Forms are available at the bottom of the page.)

Note: Always check here to ensure you are using the most current version of each form and/or template. 

Note, all of the following forms are available from within the corresponding submission in eRA.

  • The HRP-211 Initial Application Form, Continuing/Final Review Form and Amendment Form are eForms.  These forms will be available when you create one of these submissions (Initial Application, Continuing Review, Final Review or Amendment), within the submission in the eRA system.  Please do not upload outdated Word Document Submission Forms as these are no longer used for Continuing Reviews or Amendments.  Review the appropriate Submission Guide for more information about completing these forms.
  • HRP-214: FORM - New Information—This form is a required attachment for a New Information submission.  A New Information submission is required in cases of unusual events within a research study, such as an unanticipated problem, adverse event, breach of subject confidentiality or outside audit of your research.  See page 2 of the form for more specific examples.  A New Information Form or submission should not be used to submit minor changes or updates to research - this requires an Amendment.
