SCRO ARROW Ongoing Activities Guidance
This page provides SCRO ARROW guidance for ongoing protocol activities
Submitting a change of protocol or continuing review application:
continuing review application is due to the committee one year minus a
day from the initial protocol or last continuing review. PIs and Points
of Contact will receive emails from ARROW as a reminder to complete the
continuing review. Reminders will begin to be sent 45 days before the
continuing review is due. Once a protocol expires, an investigator has
30 days to respond before a new initial review application must be
started. The option to create a continuing review in ARROW will only appear once you receive the first notice.
Change of protocol:
- Addition of a new cell line not listed on the NIH or UW–Madison hESC Registeries
- Change of funding
- Change of PI
- Significant changes in research type, study design, or research question
