Protocol Applications at ZSFG

Research Protocol Applications

Researchers planning to enroll patients at ZSFG and/or use ZSFG personnel, resources, facilities, space (even if it is your own office) or ZSFG patient data (even if you are only collecting names and numbers), you must complete a ZSFG Research Protocol Application for official approval and research-tracking activity on the ZSFG campus.

       (complete if conducting investigational drug study) 
  2. Gather all signatures except for administrative approvals at the end of the application (see contacts)
