Just in Time (JIT) NIH Funding
It is always a very good sign when an investigator receives a 'just-in-time' request
from NIH. The IRB Office is asking all investigators to contact the IRB upon receipt
of a JIT request (or if they are anticipating a JIT request), so that we can ensure
appropriate deployment of IRB resources.
E-mail the IRB Director, Christopher Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org),
with 'JIT' in the subject line, and whenever possible, do this BEFORE actually hitting
the 'submit' button in OSIRIS.
In the e-mail text, investigators should provide the OSIRIS protocol (PRO) number
(note: as soon as an application is opened in OSIRIS, a PRO number is generated),
upload a complete copy of the grant application in OSIRIS (investigators
may redact actual salary information), and summarize the JIT request (including
Investigators should also indicate in the e-mail whether this is a single site protocol
(i.e., data collection solely at Pitt), or whether Pitt is also serving in some
type of 'coordinating center' or 'data center' for a study that includes two or
more data collection sites.
