Dear VCU Research Community,

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our latest tool designed to streamline and enhance the research process: the HRP-503b Template for Not Human Subject Research (NHSR) Determination Requests. Developed by the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) at Virginia Commonwealth University, this template is set to revolutionize the way we handle research inquiries that fall outside the purview of human subject research.

What makes this template so special? It provides researchers with a clear and comprehensive framework for submitting NHSR determination requests, ensuring that all necessary information is included and facilitating efficient review and processing by our dedicated HRP team. By utilizing this standardized template, researchers can expedite the determination process and focus more time and energy on advancing their groundbreaking work.

Key features of the HRP-503b Template include:

  • Structured Format: The template guides researchers through the submission process with clear prompts and sections, ensuring that all relevant details are provided in a logical and organized manner.
  • Compliance Assurance: By adhering to the template’s guidelines, researchers can rest assured that their NHSR determination requests meet the necessary regulatory requirements and ethical standards.
  • Expedited Review: Our HRP team can quickly assess NHSR determination requests submitted using the template, helping researchers receive timely feedback and approvals.
  • Accessibility: The template is easily accessible to all VCU researchers, promoting widespread adoption and consistency across different research projects and disciplines.

Whether you’re conducting literature reviews, quality improvement activities, or educational research, the HRP-503b Template for NHSR Determination Requests is here to support you every step of the way.

To access the template and learn more about its use, please visit the VCU Human Research Protection Program website or contact our office directly. We are committed to providing you with the resources and support you need to conduct ethical and impactful research at VCU.
