06/05/2012: Banking Studies

To the research community:

As of July 1, 2012, the IRB-01 will no longer accept banking addendums attached to a primary study, if that bank is to be located at UF\Shands\VAMC. In its place, you must submit a separate “banking” proposal Introductory Questionnaire for Tissue/Data Banks with a separate “banking” consent Short ICF: Tissue/Data Banks conducted at UF/Shands . Potential subjects that are being enrolled in the primary study, must also enroll in the “banking” study if the investigator wishes to store the subject’s tissue, data, or re-contact information for future research purposes.

For more information, please refer to the Banking position paper Tissue & Data Banks or contact the IRB office at 273-9600.
