Stem Cells Research


Overview of Stem Cell Research

Institutional Information

  • Human stem cell research should be conducted with high ethical and scientific standards, under the requirements set forward by SBU, possible sponsors, and both the federal and state government.
  • Campus Policy

Federal Policies

Federal Guidance

Stem Cell Training

In order for you to be certified to conduct research that involve stem cells, you must:

  1. Complete the Stem Cell Modules in CITI
  2. Familiarize yourself with SBU and Federal Policies on Stem Cells Research

Note: Before conducting your project, you must also secure approval from all relevant oversight committees; SCRO review does not preclude the necessity of review by other research oversight committees as applicable, e.g.; Committee on Research Involving Human Subjects (CORIHS), the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), etc.

Submission Guidelines

IRBNet is SBU's electronic system for the administration and management of Biosafety records.

Components of a Basic Submission for a New Project

Create and Submit a New, First Time Submission

How to Add a Document

Download and save the form to your computer. Once you have completed it and saved it to your computer, upload it back into your submission package. This is done by clicking the 'Add New Document' button in the Designer and uploading the file from your computer (via the top, shaded, box). You will now see the completed form added to your document package.

How to Share a Package

What Your Electronic Signature Means on an IRBNet Package

Before you sign an IRBNet package, be sure to refer to the last pages of the IACUC, IBC, and/or SCRO application (as applicable) to understand what you are certifying when you sign the IRBNet package for the activity.

Respond to Committee Concerns, Post-Review

Create and Submit a Continuing Review Package – First or Second Renewal

Create and Submit a Continuing Review Package – Full Triennial Review

Submit an Amendment to your Approved Study

Locked vs. Unlocked Packages

Once a study is submitted to a committee office, it is LOCKED in that office.

VERY IMPORTANT: You can continue to obtain investigator signatures on a locked package. Under no circumstances should you create a new package just for the purpose of obtaining signatures

Packages can only be unlocked by ORC Staff. This can be done if you let us know that you’ve made an error in something that you just submitted, or if we let you know that we see something that is missing or needs to be fixed before review.
