HRP forms are not required for Ideate submissions.
This form accompanies changes to add personnel or to the Appendices. The Principal Investigator must sign the form. The Department Chair or designee must sign the attestation on modifications that include the addition of study personnel. If personnel are being added from multiple departments, the chairs of each department involved in the research must sign.
Below are standalone sections of Form HRP-211: These can be used if multiple of same sections of the Application for Human Research form are needed (e.g. multiple "drug/biologic" Appendix B):

- HRP-213 Modification of Approved Human Research (9/2/14)
- HRP-214 Response to PPHS (9/2/14)

For additional information, please review Our IRB, Commercial IRBs/BRANY and Other IRBs on the For Researchers page.
All applications submitted to IRB@mssm.edu for IRB review require a Protocol Template. Please refer to the Template Protocol with Instructions (HRP-503) in order to see what information the IRB needs in order to evaluate each section. You can use this for your Template and delete the instructions as you go or use this as a reference document and type directly into HRP-503a, which contains only section headings without detailed instructions.
The template you will use depends on how your submission will be made to the PPHS. Our electronic submission system, Ideate, is in use for all new submissions and requires use of the Ideate template versions below.
Ideate Consent Templates
***The new consent template incorporates new elements of consent required under the Revised Common Rule, which goes into effect on January 21, 2019. All new projects must utilize the new template. The new template has been revised and reorganized, so please start from stratch with this document rather than trying to cut and paste whole sections from old templates.***
Additional template versions (additional translations) will be forthcoming. If you need a specific version, or a copy of the old template, please contact the IRB Office directly at email@example.com.
