New Automated Determination Tools for UF Researchers

On October 18th, 2022, Dr. David Norton, the Vice President for Research at UF, announced the launch of the new online automated determination tools for nonhuman research, exempt research, and non-medical quality improvement (QI) projects. These tools work by asking yes/no or multiple-selection questions to determine if an activity meets nonhuman, exempt, or QI requirements. If the activity meets these requirements, researchers can submit the form and receive immediate determination approval rather than submitting these projects through UF IRB for review or approval.
