Brief Descriptions of each CFAR Clinical Research Facilitation Core Service
New IRB application: Initial application for IRB approval of a new study. Includes review of study design, informed consent procedures and forms, plan for privacy/ confidentiality and data security, assistance with a recruitment plan and materials, and other items.
IRB Post-Approval Report: Reports informing the IRB of items pertaining to research conduct or participant safety, such as adverse events, violations, deviations/incidents, and updated study safety information.
Guidance on Protocol Development: Assistance in development of a protocol. Protocols will organize study goals, design, and logistics into a document. Required for certain clinical research. Useful for IRB submissions, grant proposals, and/or for study staff/personnel.
Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) Application: The IBC is an ancillary regulatory committee that oversees research involving infectious agents, recombinant/ synthetic nucleic acids, transgenic animals, etc. The purpose of IBC is to ensure researchers have safety and reporting plans in place to prevent spills/accidents, as well as if spills/accidents happen. (Note: If your study involves blood draws or processing lab samples from HIV positive participants, you will need IBC review.)
Medical Radiation Safety Committee (MRSC) application: The MRSC is a committee that oversees studies involving radiological medical procedures, i.e. X-rays, CT scans, etc. (Note: Even if your study is using standard of care radiation procedures, the MRSC needs to be notified of your study’s activities).
Certificate of Confidentiality (CoC) Application: Application for certificate issued by the NIH/other HHS agencies that protects researchers from being forced to disclose participant information, except in certain circumstances. Required in most clinical research and surveys involving questions about sexual or drug use practices.
Investigational New Drug (IND) Application (IND Exemptions only): Exemption from Investigational New Drug (IND) application requirements; usually relevant for certain investigations involving drugs approved for marketing in the US, bioavailability/ bioequivalence investigations, or studies using radioactive or cold isotopes.
Clinical and Translational Research Center Application for Services: application to utilize services and resources provided by the UCLA CTRC (including research nurses, drug administration, pharmacokinetic assessments, etc.)
RSVP query and unlimited email referrals: RSVP is a volunteer registry of HIV positive and negative individuals from the greater Los Angeles area interested in participating in research (click here for more information [insert hyperlink to “About RSVP” tab of website]). Use of the registry requires specific IRB approval.
RSVP phone calls (per 10 calls): For an additional charge, the RSVP team will call RSVP participants identified as potential matches for your study who requested phone contact only and provide them with information about your study and your study contact information.
