How do I get my protocol approved by the SEPCOM so it can be activated on any or all of the CRUs?

In order to submit a protocol to the Scientific Evaluation and Prioritization Committee (SEPCOM) for approval and subsequent initiation on one of our Clinical Research Units (CRU), the SEPCOM application form must be completed and submitted to the GU administration or HU administration.

The application must be accompanied by the i) the protocol as it was/will be submitted to the relevant IRB and ii) the study consent form. Copies of grant applications or other relevant documents should also be submitted. The SEPCOM meets on a monthly basis and a protocol must generally be received 3 weeks before the monthly meeting in order to be reviewed at the next meeting.
