Where do I go to find information about ORCRA?
What is Human Subjects Research?
  • Human subjects research means any activity
    intended to obtain and record information
  • from or about individuals for research purposes.
    Any undertaking in which students,
  • faculty, or staff investigate and/or collect data
    on human subjects or use existing data or
  • specimens collected from living human subjects
    for research purposes, requires review by
  • the Institutional Review Board prior to
    initiation of the project. This includes both
  • and non-funded research, including dissertations,
    masters theses, pilot studies, class
  • projects, and non-funded, faculty-directed
    research if the following conditions are met
  • the research is sponsored by the University, or
  • the research is conducted by or under the
    direction of any University employee or
  • agent of this institution in connection with
    his/her institutional responsibilities, or
  • the research is conducted by or under the
    direction of any University employee or
  • agent of this institution using any University
    property or facility, or
  • the research involves the use of the
    University's non-public information to
  • identify or contact human research subjects or
    prospective subjects

What are the criteria for human research?
What is the IRB?
  • Institutional Review Board
  • UC has 2 medical boards
  • And 1 social/behavioral board
  • The University of Cincinnati has established
    three Institutional Review Board (IRB) panels
    to review all proposed research involving human
    subjects to ensure that the rights and welfare of
    participants in research are adequately
    protected. The University of Cincinnati IRB
    serves as the IRB of record for the University of
    Cincinnati, University Hospital, Inc., The
    Shriners Institute for Burned Children, The
    Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and
    The Drake Center.
  • The IRBs are composed primarily of faculty
    members from disciplines
  • in which research involving human subjects is
    integral to that discipline's work, as well as
    several members from the community whose primary
    interest is in non-scientific areas. The Board(s)
    membership, policies, and procedures are governed
    by an Assurance agreement with the Federal

What is post approval monitoring?
  • The Human Subjects Research Post-Approval
    Monitoring Program administers quality
    assurance/quality improvement monitoring.
  • The purpose of this program is to ensure that
    scientific, ethical and regulatory requirements
    are followed in all Institutional Review Board
    approved protocols.
  • The program is also designed to improve the
    quality of research by detecting errors and/or
    omissions that might occur when performing
    research activities.
  • This will also give the investigators an
    opportunity to ask questions and receive
    information about regulations and issues
    regarding the protection of human subjects.

What do we monitor?
  • Education of investigators
  • Investigator initiated studies
  • Sponsor-investigator IND/IDE
  • Informed consent observations
  • Performance of the study
  • AE communications from subjects
  • Data tissue handling

What is the Process?
  • There are two processes
  • 1. Off-site review (self assessment)
  • complete questionnaire
  • 2. On-site review
  • Formal visit by Program Director
  • Interview of personnel
  • Review of SOPs, etc.
  • Observation of consent process
  • Medical Director will meet with PI for interview
  • Final report sent to Compliance Officer, IRB
    Chair, Senior VP for Research

Do I need training?
  • While not mandatory, training in Good Clinical
    Practices (GCP) is strongly suggested.
  • Recommendations for training materials are
    located on the Compliance Training site

Some Frequently Asked Questions associated with

Q  Why does the University have a monitoring
program?A  The Post-Approval Monitoring Program
serves five functions 1) to assist investigators
to improve their research processes by sharing
best practices among researchers 2) to protect
the integrity of research by identifying and
correcting significant deficiencies in approved
research protocols 3) to promote human subject
protection through the ethical conduct of
research 4) to improve the processes of the IRB
and 5) to identify topics for research education.
Q Am I in trouble because I was selected for
monitoring? A  The majority of studies that are
monitored are selected at random. Receiving
notification that a study has been selected for a
monitoring visit does NOT imply that wrong doing
is suspected in the conduct of the study. Q
What research protocols are subject to
review?A  Research studies for which the
Post-Approval Monitoring Program will conduct
reviews will be chosen mostly from among studies
not monitored by other institutions or by
sponsors of the research, and which Present
greater than minimal risk to participants are
investigator-initiated protocols have vulnerable
populations, including UC employees and students,
decisionally-impaired participants, pregnant
women/fetuses/neonates, prisoners, and children
present a potential for conflict of interest are
requested by the IRB to be reviewed
(IRB-requested monitoring).

Animal ResearchWho do I call IACUC or LAMS?
  • Protocol Submissions
  • Personnel Training
  • Compliance Concerns
  • LAMS
  • Animal Ordering
  • Housing Space Needs
  • Veterinary Health Issues

What is the IACUC?
  • Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee
  • Both federal Animal Welfare Act Regulations
    (AWARs) and the Public Health Service Policy on
    Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (PHS
    policy) require that the Chief Executive Officer
    or his/her designee appoint an Institutional
    Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).
  • Essentially, the IACUC serve as animal research
    ethics board committed to the welfare of animals.
    The IACUC plays an important role in ensuring
    that the animals under its purview are used and
    cared for in a humane manner.

What are the regulatory charges the IACUC?
  • Review the institutions program for animal care
    and use at least biannually
  • Inspect all the institutions animal facilities,
    including animal study areas and satellite
  • Report to the Institutional Official on the above
    inspections and reviews and make recommendations
    for corrections
  • Investigate concerns involving the care and use
    of animals at the institution resulting from
    complaints from personnel at the institution or
    the public
  • Review proposed activities related to the care
    and use of animals including modifications to
    previously approved activities (protocol review).
  • Suspend an activity involving animals if it does
    not comply with PHS policy, AWRs, the Guide, or
    the University of Cincinnatis Animal Welfare

Where do these regulatory mandates come from?
PHS Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) is
charged with implementing the Health Research
Extension Act (HREA) of 1985, as well as any
policies/regulations established by PHS to
implement HERA
The United States Department of Agriculture
(USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
(APHIS) is charged with implementing the Animal
Welfare Act. The USDA has done so through the
Animal Welfare Act Regulations and the Animal
Care Policy Manual.
The Association for the Assessment and
Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care
International (AAALAC) is a non-profit
association that provides a voluntary
accreditation program to institutions wishing to
demonstrate the highest level of commitment to
responsible care and use of animals.

Do I need training?
  • Both OLAW and the USDA require proper training
    of all personnel who will work with vertebrate
    animals. At the University of Cincinnati and
    Shriners Hospitals for Children, all personnel
    must attend Orientation prior to working with
    animals and every 3 years thereafter. Orientation
    sessions are provided on a regular basis. As
    research staff is added to protocols, their
    experience is reviewed, and they must attend
    appropriate training before beginning work with
  • Orientation covers the following items
  • Federal Regulations, including OLAW USDA
    regulatory requirements
  • Institutional Policies
  • AAALAC The Guide for the Care and Use of
    Laboratory Animals
  • AVMA Panel on Euthanasia
  • Animal Welfare
  • Humane practice of animal maintenance and
  • Reduction, Replacement, Refinement
  • Overview of the Universitys Occupational Health
    Safety Program, including zoonotic diseases
  • A Certification Examination is conducted at the
    end of Orientation. All personnel must receive a
    passing score to receive credit for the
    Orientation. If a passing score is not received,
    personnel will be required to attend another
    Orientation session.
  • The Principal Investigator (PI) must complete
    IACUC Orientation and other applicable training
    before the IACUC will consider approving the
    protocol.  If funds need to be transferred from
    another institution and the PI is not yet at UC,
    the protocol may be approved but animals cannot
    be ordered and animal studies may not begin until
    all training requirements have been met.  The
    approval will be valid for 60 days.

What are Laboratory Animal Medicine Services?
The primary mission of Laboratory Animal Medical
Services is to provide an animal care and use
program for the University of Cincinnati research
and teaching community. This program provides for
the health, husbandry and veterinary medical care
of animals under the University of Cincinnati's
stewardship. The department delivers such in a
compassionate, humane and respectful manner, as
well as maintaining the highest standards of
quality and strives to achieve accreditation and

What agents does the IBC regulate?
  • The IBC reviews all research protocols
  • Recombinant DNA (rDNA)
  • Agents infectious to humans, animals or plants
  • Other genetically altered organisms agents
  • Select agents toxins
  • To use any of these agents, you must complete a
    biosafety protocol and have it reviewed and
    approved by the IBC.
  • In order to begin the process, contact Erin Dunn
    in the Biosafety Office for password approval

What are risk groups?
Basis for the Classification of Biohazardous
Agents by Risk Group (RG) Risk Group 1 (RG1)
Agents that are not associated with disease in
healthy adult humans Risk Group 2 (RG2) Agents
that are associated with human disease which is
rarely serious and for which preventive or
therapeutic interventions are often
available Risk Group 3 (RG3) Agents that are
associated with serious or lethal human disease
for which preventive or therapeutic interventions
may be available (high individual risk but low
community risk) Risk Group 4 (RG4) Agents that
are likely to cause serious or lethal human
disease for which preventive or therapeutic
interventions are not usually available (high
individual risk and high community risk)
What is meant by containment level?
Work with RG4 agents Is not allowed At UC
GMT Good microbiological technique,  BSC
Biological Safety Cabinet
What are select agents?
On June 12, 2002 President Bush signed the
"Public Health Security and Bioterrorism
Preparedness and Response Act of 2002" (Public
Law 107-188). The Law's purpose is to improve the
ability of the United States to prevent, prepare
for, and respond to bioterrorism and other public
health emergencies. The Law requires that all
persons possessing select biological agents or
toxins deemed a threat to public health, animal
or plant health, or animal or plant products
register with the appropriate federal agency.
On March 18, 2005, final rules were published
in the Federal Register by the Departments of
Health and Human Services (HHS) and Agriculture
(USDA) governing facilities that possess, use or
transfer select biological agents or toxins.
These rules became effective on April 18, 2005.
What do I need to do to work with select agents?
  • To begin the process for approval
  • Contact the BSO. 
  • Submit to a security risk assessment (SRA) by the
    United States Department of Justice, Federal
    Bureau of Investigations, Criminal Justice
    Information Services. 
  • The individual PI and laboratory personnel must
  • Have fingerprints taken and submitted to the FBI,
    CJIS by an authorized officer in the University
    of Cincinnati Department of Public Safety
  • Complete sections II and III of form FD-961
  • Be added to the University of Cincinnati entity
  • Please note the following
  • Individuals may not self register.
  • Approval of individual registrations may take
    from 3-6 months.
  • Approval for the possession, use and transfer of
    select agents cannot be transferred from one
    entity to another

Why do I need IBC approval?
The NIH and the University of Cincinnati require
research involving biohazards to be reviewed and
approval by the Institutional Biosafety Committee
(IBC). Section IV-B-2-b-(1-6) The institution
shall establish an Institutional Biosafety
Committee, whose responsibilities need not be
restricted to recombinant DNA and is responsible
for reviewing recombinant DNA research
compliance with the NIH Guidelines. The
unapproved use of biohazardous agents is in
violations of NIH Guidelines and places not only
individual funding, but all research funding at
UC in jeopardy. Section I-D-1. All NIH-funded
projects involving recombinant DNA techniques
must comply with the NIH Guidelines.
Non-compliance may result in (i) suspension,
limitation, or termination of financial
assistance for the noncompliant NIH-funded
research project and the NIH funds for other
recombinant DNA research at the institution, or
(ii) a requirement for prior NIH approval of any
or all recombinant DNA projects at the

University of Cincinnati before I can begin to
use radioactive materials (RAM)? Yes. Even if you
attended training or have experience using
radioactive materials (RAM) at another
institution you are still required to attend
site-specific training at the University of
Cincinnati before you may handle radioactive
materials under the University of Cincinnati
Radiation Control and Safety Program
(RCSP). What training must I complete before
handling radioactive materials? Before handling
radioactive material under the University of
Cincinnati Radiation Control and Safety Program
(RCSP) individuals must complete site specific
training provided by the Radiation Safety Office
(RSOf). Also, the individual must complete
lab-specific training provided by the authorized
user(s). Site-specific training provided by the
RSOf consists of two courses called Basic and
Advanced. Experienced users of radioactive
material may pass out of the Basic course by
