PLEASE NOTE: AN LOI IS NO LONGER REQUIRED PRIOR TO SUBMISSION OF A PROTOCOL FOR LINEBERGER INITIATED STUDIES
The LOI is now an optional submission for those who would like scientific input and guidance from the PRC. It will be administratively reviewed and presented by an single PRC member at a PRC Meeting. The PRC will be available to provide input and additional support to the PI, referring them to the proper faculty for mentorship, and providing the tools for the PI to formulate a successful and complete protocol.
This change in the LOI process has been implemented to reduce redundancy for PI's who are familiar with writing protocols and to provide assistance for those unfamiliar with the process.
Please forward any questions regarding this new policy to the PRC coordinator for further clarification.
