Listing Study Team Members in the Application

Listing the Principal Investigator

  • Anyone listed as PI in the application can edit and submit the application as well as create and submit changes, continuing reviews, and reportable events for the study. The PI also receives email notifications about the study.
  • The PI should be listed on the first page of the IRB application.
  • If the PI will not designate any points of contact for the study, they also should list themselves as a point of contact.
  • The PI does NOT need to be listed on the Study Team page of the application. Please see below for information on who should be listed on this page.
  • The PI should be listed on the Study Team: Roles page, where applicable.
  • If the study involves certain types of procedures, the PI may need to be listed (if appropriate) where requested elsewhere in the application (e.g., cognitive assessments page).

Listing Points of Contact

  • A point of contact (POC) is someone designated by the PI to serve as a point person for a study. Up to four POCs can be listed for a study. NOTE: This applies ONLY to the HS and MR IRBs.
  • Anyone listed as a POC in the application can edit and submit the application as well as create and submit changes, continuing reviews, and reportable events for the study (if applicable). The POCs also receive email notifications about the study. NOTE: PIs retain ultimate responsibility for the conduct of those to whom they delegate research responsibilities.
  • Any POCs should be listed in response to question 1.6 on the first page of the application.
  • POCs do NOT need to be listed on the Study Team page of the application. Please see below for information on who should be listed on this page.
  • POCs should be listed on the Study Team: Roles page, where applicable.
  • If the study involves certain types of procedures, a POC may need to be listed (if appropriate) where requested elsewhere in the application (e.g., cognitive assessments page).

Listing Study Team Members

Except for the PI and points of contact, all study team members engaged in human subjects research must be listed on the Study Team page of the application. Study team members may be granted edit access or read-only access, as described below:

  • Edit access: Any study team member listed in this category will be able to edit the application and receive email notifications from ARROW regarding this study. Those with edit access may not create or submit applications for a study, but they can edit a submission after it has been created. Only a PI or a POC can create and submit applications in ARROW.
  • Read-only access: Study team members listed in this category will only be able to read the application and will not receive email notifications from ARROW.

Do the PI and/or Point(s) of Contact need to be listed as having edit or read-only access?

No. Being listed as PI and POC for an application already grants the ability to access and edit that application, so the PI and POCs do NOT need to be listed again on the Study Team page.

Who can submit materials to the IRB through ARROW?

Only people listed as the PI and POC can submit materials to the IRB through ARROW.

Do study team members outside UW-Madison/UW Health/Madison VA (i.e., external personnel) need to be listed in the application?

Whether external personnel need to be listed in the application and how depends on whether UW-Madison is serving as their IRB of record as well as their role in the study. Please contact the Health Sciences IRBs Reliance Team (irbreliance@wisc.edu) for help with questions regarding external personnel.
