PROTOCOLS SUBMITTED WITHOUT ALL THE REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION WILL NOT BE REVIEWED
All investigators must obtain IRB approval for research protocols involving human subjects prior to initiating the study.
All submissions must be electronically submitted thru STREAMLYNE and the response to questions must be in English.
STREAMLYNE is an efficient online system for faster review and online approval. The primary objective of the implementation of Streamlyne at PMSF is to remove the paper processing related to Research Administration Compliance. We kindly recommend reading the guidelines carefully, answer all of the IRB questions directly related to the protocol needs and save your responses frequently.
