Research Application Process Flowchart
The flowchart below provides a quick guide to the Radiation Safety Committee research application process:
(If this flowchart doesn't fit your needs, please contact the RSO.)
Research use involves radiation produced by machines (x-ray, CT, linear accelerator) or radioactive material (isotopes, nuclear medicine, sealed sources).
Radioactive Material (Isotopes, Radionuclides, Irradiators)
Unsealed Radioactive Material (liquid, gas or solid)
Is research being done under a current Authorized User?
YES - (choose from below)
NO - (choose from below)
Radiation Machines (X-Ray, X-Ray Diffraction, CT, Orthovoltage)
New Facility - Application for Analytical X-Ray
Existing Facility - Submit staff training information, contact RSO
Is radioactive material/radiation therapy machine use a routine diagnostic/therapeutic modality (approved by NRC 10 CFR 35 or Agreement State regulation)?
YES - Is radiation use supervised by an Authorized User approved for the appropriate type?
NO - Does protocol have an assigned IND or IDE?
