IRB Approval

Each New Principal Investigator is required to submit the protocol of his or her new study to the IRB within the Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System. NeRVe Center Staff ( will help you include the appropriate language required by the IRB in your protocol to conduct human studies within our MRI Suite and Imaging Center. Templates for individual sections will be posted on this page as they are drafted and edited.

A Service Impact Form needs to be completed for submission to the IRB. Please contact our Administrative Office, Abigail Sapiro at for this form.
