Can funds be dispersed prior to IRB approval to aid the application process?

No, funds cannot be dispersed until IRB approval is confirmed. Applicants will have the opportunity to provide Just-in-Time approvals prior to the start date.

ITHS is funded through a CTSA grant from NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). NCATS requires the review and approval of all pilot grants involving human subjects research before funds are released. Therefore, if your proposal is awarded funding and involves human subjects research, additional documentation will be required. NCATS review and IRB review can be concurrent, but final NCATS approval is contingent upon IRB approval.
