Revised NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules Now Available

 

On March 22, 2016, the NIH Office of Science Policy (OSP) published a Federal Register notice detailing the revised procedures for the review of human gene transfer trials subject to the NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules (NIH Guidelines).  These changes are effective April 27, 2016.  A version of the April 2016 NIH Guidelines can now be found on the OSP website.  OSP has also added a number of additional resources to assist institutions in complying with the revised NIH Guidelines.  These resources include:
