Documentation of IRB or SRAC Approval to Obtain Imager Access

Investigators performing human and animal studies at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center must submit documentation of compliance with Partners Human Research Committee (PHRC)/ Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Subcommittee on Research Animal Care (SRAC) regulations, respectively. We cannot assign imaging time or allow use of the Center's imaging resources without this documentation. Documents will be kept in the investigator's file at the Martinos Center and used by the Martinos Center staff to verify adherence to protocol. Please help us keep this information up to date.

The following documents must be submitted for each protocol:

  • Most recent IRB or SRAC approval letter for protocol
  • Electronic copy of approved protocol including application form, study personnel, detailed protocol and consent forms (for human studies)
  • Electronic copy of complete SRAC application with all affiliate files (for animal studies)
  • Electronic copy of any protocol amendments and amendment approval letters
