The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Protocol Service Center (PSC) provides protocol navigation assistance to NIH investigators and staff in the development and administration of study protocols that require NIH Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. The NHGRI PSC is open to NHGRI investigators who present their protocols to any NIH IRB and to NIH investigators who present their protocols to the NHGRI IRB. The NHGRI PSC may be available to investigators in other circumstances upon request.
The NHGRI PSC is staffed by protocol navigators with knowledge of the protocol review cycle and expertise in Institute and NIH policies and procedures, as well as Federal regulations and policies related to human subjects research. The NHGRI PSC maintains close working relationships with the NHGRI IRB, the NHGRI Bioethics Core and the NIH Office of Human Subjects Research Protections (OHSRP) to create a network of resources for the investigator wishing to conduct clinical research.
Services that the PSC can provide to investigators and their research staff include:
