Clinical IRB Forms
Mercer University faculty, staff, or students who wish to conduct research with MCCG will need to complete the MCCG forms
The Office of Research Compliance will forward the MCCG IRB application forms to the MCCG IRB contact Mrs. Penny Nobles. Once the application is approved by MCCG’s IRB, human subject research can begin. For further information contact MCCG's IRB at (478) 633-1440.
1. Clinical Studies Involving Human Subjects
Research that is invasive and clinical should be submitted on this form for committee review. Informed consent, in most cases, is required in this type of research. Application
2. Request for Modification/Amendment - Periodically, investigators make changes to their research that is different from the original protocol approved by the Committee. This form should be used for example: amendments, advertisements, consent form changes, new procedures, new survey tool, addition/deletion of an investigator, addition/deletion of site. Modification/Amendment Application
3. Continuing Review Form for Previously Approved Projects - According to federal regulations research must be reviewed at least annually. Courtsey reminder letters are sent to investigators 60 or 30 days prior to the expiration date of the approval period. The "courtsey reminder" does not take the place of the investigator's responsibility to ensure that their research project remains in compliance. This form should be used for continuing renewals. Application
If a continuing review form is not submitted before the expiration of the approval, the study will be closed.
**All persons conducting research involving human subjects must have on file with the Office of Research Compliance a valid certificate of Human Subjects Training from CITI.
