Instructions for Adding Project Personnel to a Protocol

Every individual who will have direct contact with live animals on any given protocol MUST be listed as project personnel on each protocol they will participate in.

To add personnel to your protocol, go to the IACUC Online Protocols system and click “Assign a Project Member” or “Assign a Senior Member” button below each personnel section on the Title page of the protocol. Note that Senior members must be affiliated with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and are limited to three persons.

Go to Section 17 to indicate the training and experience pertaining to the species to be used and the specific procedures to be performed by the new personnel. If the individual(s) you are adding to your project personnel do not have training and/or experience, please provide a description of the training they will receive and who will provide that training. Failure to include this training information will delay approval of your project personnel.

Once all information is completed, click “Submit amendment” at the top of any page. Changes to protocols cannot be reviewed and approved unless submitted.

New individual(s) must also enroll in the Occupational Health and Safety Program and they need to complete the Basic Training Program for Animal Users. Each person’s current training status is displayed on the Title page. Click the icon to see what may be missing.

Please remember that the new project personnel are not authorized to work with animals until all of the above steps have been completed AND you have received notification from the IACUC office has approved the individual(s) addition to your protocol.
