Prepare for institutional approvals

Need assistance with institutional approvals?

Research activities at Duke typically require review and approval by various offices and groups. Some reviews are required by federal agencies, some are required by the institution, but all are intended to ensure that Duke’s research is safe, efficient, and feasible. Knowing in advance which approvals are required for any research project can help reduce delays and frustration.

The "related resources" on this page provide policies and guidance regarding various institutional approvals. Utilize the "Customize Your Path" feature to tailor these resources to specific project inclusions and oversight.
