What if samples/images/data are coming from an outside source?

Frequently Asked Question

If the samples are coming from an outside source, but the UW researcher is either conducting his/her own research study or collaborating on a research study at another institution, UW IRB review and approval or exemption is required prior to receiving the samples/images/data and conducting any study activities.  In addition, the IRB may request documentation of IRB approval from the site providing the samples/data/images if they were originally collected for a research purpose.
