Research-related Issues

FAQ: I’m experiencing delayed subject recruitment and/or cancellations of scheduled follow up visits with my study participants and it is negatively affecting the progress of my grant. What should I do?

For programmatic issues affecting your study, we strongly recommend you speak with your agency Program Official or other sponsor contact. If any issues should persist, they may need to be reported in future progress reports, or you may need a No Cost Extension to complete your study. Please coordinate any such actions with your OSP Sponsored Project Administrator.

You should also speak with a university IRB Coordinator.  They can help explore alternative methods for recruitment or follow up visits that may be feasible to reduce impact on your study.
