Review of Human Subjects Protocols Involving Radiation

All human subjects protocols that involve exposing individuals to radiation (ionizing or nonionizing) must be submitted to Research Laboratory & Safety Services for review by the appropriate safety committee.

Submit the following to Research Laboratory & Safety Services:

1. A cover letter with:

  • Contact information
  • The type(s) and frequency of radiation exposure
  • If radiation exposure is for research purposes only

Address cover letter to:
Research Laboratory & Safety Services
PO Box 245101
Campus Mail

2. Copy of the consent form.  The consent form must include a risk statement of the potential threats involved with the radiation exposure. Avoid comparing the dose to be received with the environmental dose or giving exact dose numbers.

Submit the information by email to

Principal Investigators, their contacts, and the Human Subjects Protection Program will be emailed the review letter.

Please contact Keith Carsten at (520) 626-5469 with any questions.
