Checklist for Departing Researchers - Human Subjects and Institutional Review Board (IRB) Protocols

Active IRB protocols must be closed or transferred to another Penn State researcher through formal processes in CATS IRB. Researchers who wish to transfer an active study to their new institution should work with the ORP as early as possible prior to departure to transfer IRB oversight.

Note: At the College of Medicine, please contact the Research Quality Assurance Office. At all other locations, please contact the Office for Research Protections.
