How do I use the guide?

Which regulatory bodies are included?
• Emory Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHSO) - regulates all laboratory research
• Work on multiple compliances at once, rather than waiting for each to be approved before moving onto the next. The timeline will help you plan accordingly.
• The information provided in this Guide was assembled by the Department of Medicine's 2013 Research Support Subcommittee. The information is not guaranteed to be complete or accurate due to the constant changing and updating of requirements and should not be considered an official view of the IRB, IACUC, DAR, EHSO, or any other Emory administration listed on this site.
