New human subjects post-approval monitoring program in 2019

The UGA Human Subjects Office will conduct post-approval assessments of active projects beginning January 2019 to ensure the educational needs of investigators are met and human research is compliant with regulations and institutional policies.

Projects that will be assessed are identified through the IRB Portal. Post-approval monitoring will be conducted on non-exempt federally funded studies. The goal is to assess up to 10% of active federally sponsored projects each quarter. These will be selected at random from our database of active studies.

Please contact Angela Bain at 706-542-3821 for questions about this new program.
