Submission Policy and Guidance

Once a new DF/HCC protocol has been created, it must be submitted to the Office for Human Research Studies (OHRS) before research can begin. New protocol submission types include Clinical Trials Research, Social and Behavioral Research, Retrospective Medical Records Review, Prospective Collection of Human Material or Data, Request for an Exemption Determination, or Request for a Determination of Not Human Subjects Research. Submissions to OHRS require researchers to have access to: OHRS Submit, OnCore and OncPro systems.
