Translational Research Program
One of the major challenges that researchers face when beginning a clinical research project, is navigating through the regulatory approval process. An essential part of responsibly conducting research is ensuring that your study is in compliance with federal, state, local and hospital regulations and policies. Depending on the type of research that you are conducting different types of regulatory review and approval must be granted before you begin your project. Below are some resources about the possible required regulatory procedures that your project may require. If you have any questions about regulatory process for your clinical research project please contact Matt Wladkowski, (Matthew.Wladkowski@childrens.harvard.edu or 617-919-2777), in the Translational Research Program.
