IRB Approval
• Required for:
– All review of medical records
– All retrospective review
– Any study involving patients/ informed consent
• Website: http//medicine.ucsd.edu/humsub/
• Types of approval:
– Regular
– Expedited
• UCSD and VA approval
– Share a common IRB committee
– Once UCSD IRB approval acquired, must pass an administrative
approval by VA R&D committee
Steps to Begin Project
Verify the validity and novelty of the idea
Literature search (PUB MED)
Key articles (E-journal www.ucsd.edu)
Establish target journal
Discuss authorship and work responsibilities
Study design
– Objective
– Basic materials and methods
Data analysis
– Good idea to touch base with statistician to be sure design is statistically valid
– Paul Clopton (VA extension 3534)
– According to target journal instructions to authors
• If you write and submit the article to the journal,
you will be the first author
• If you do not submit the article to the journal, you
WILL NOT be the first author unless
arrangements have been made and approved
by the lead author
• With authorship comes the burden of justification
for your role in a project
Study Design:
Cadaveric Projects
• Contact person Deb Trudell (VA extension 7058)
• Protocol Description Worksheet
– Study description
– Specimen request
– MR technique (very specific)
• Imaging time
– Wednesday 9 pm start time
– Sunday 5 pm start time
Imaging Policy
• All MR images obtained for studies must be put in jpeg
format the night of imaging, placed in a folder on the
Neuroradiology PACS station on your VA sign in
• Request 2 CD’s of the data to be written by Mike Olds
(leave note on his door)
• One CD for your records which should be placed on the
Research computer in a folder with the project name
• One CD should be submitted to lead author
• Any photographs of gross anatomy/ dissections, etc for
projects should be placed on the Research computer
with a CD submitted to lead author
