Closing Out Research Studies
How to transfer research data or specimens to another institution and properly close all aspects of your research studies, including protocols and laboratories.
Departing Faculty Checklist
The Office of Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin offers a Departing Faculty Checklist as a helpful guide for researchers and department administrators to ensure all paperwork, eBridge applications, and inspections are properly finalized when closing out research studies and/or laboratories. This checklist is meant for faculty who are leaving the institution, as well as those who are remaining at MCW but are closing their research activities.
The Departing Faculty Checklist is available in pdf format from the Office of Research intranet site. Current investigators can access the checklist by searching for keywords “faculty checklist” on InfoScope and selecting the appropriate link.
