Policies, Procedures, Guidance, and Checklists

This section includes policies, procedures, guidance documents, and checklists that aid members of the Yale human subject research community in fulfilling their obligations to ensure that research is designed, conducted, and approved consistently and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations and Yale’s commitment to the protection or its research participants.

Persons conducting, supporting, or reviewing human subject research that is subject to Yale IRB approval should familiarize themselves with these documents. This section should be referenced regularly as policies, procedures, and guidelines are revised to stay current with evolving issues and regulations related to human subject research.

To the Members of the Research Community

On December 16, 2016, the Yale University IRBs fully converted to a new online protocol submission system called IRES IRB. Current IRB policies, procedures and guidance documents do not reference the change to IRES IRB. References to Coeus and email submission procedures are therefore outdated. Please be advised that the HRPP leadership will update affected IRB policies, procedures and guidance documents to reflect the change to the new electronic system.

Please contact the HRPP at hrpp@yale.edu if you have questions or require a specific statement regarding this issue.
