Reminder: Submit final reports for internal grants

“My computer crashed!” “I got busy!” “I just forgot!”

My dog ate my homework

We’ve heard every excuse in the book.

Whatever the reason, we understand that sometimes life gets in the way and you forget to do something important. That’s why the OVPR is issuing a friendly reminder to all investigators who received internal grant funds for FY 2015 to please submit the required final reports.

Information provided in final reports helps the OVPR to measure the effectiveness of our internal grant programs, so it is essential that each investigator complete the report form at the conclusion of their project. Failure to submit a report may also render a faculty member ineligible for future funding from the OVPR until the report is complete.

If you have not submitted a final report for any FY 2015 internal grant, click here to download the final report form. Fill out the form and submit it via email to Blake_Thomas@Baylor.edu.  Not sure if you are missing reports?  Email Blake and he’ll let you know what reports are still outstanding.

IRB launches redesigned website

Baylor’s Institutional Review Board has announced the launch of their newly updated website.  The site has been completely redesigned to provide investigators with all the information and tools they need to properly manage research involving human subjects.  The new site contains answers to frequently asked questions including whether or not a project falls under the purview of the IRB, what type of training is required and where to access necessary forms.

Deborah Holland, assistant vice provost for research and director of compliance, said “We are excited about the new website and hope that it helps serve the needs of our researchers. The information available on the website will grow over time to support Baylor’s research mission.”

Click here to visit the new IRB site.  Contact Deb Penney at 254-710-3708 with any questions.
