- Upstate's IRB website with forms, resources, etc.
PLEASE NOTE: During early 2011 the IRB will be converting to an all electronic submission and review system. Please check their pages frequently so that you are following appropriate procedures for project approvals. The IRB requires review of all projects including those considered "exempt".
- Upstate's Research Administration
If you are doing a funded project, this is the office that will help you through the process. This group is also responsible for electronic grant submission.
- Research project related forms including HIPAA forms needed for clearance to work with patient level data may all be found through the IRB forms page.

Vasculogenic Stem Cell Mobilization from Bone Marrow in Patients with Late Effect Radiation Injury Undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: 2 ATA vs 2.5 ATA
Hyperoxic stimulation of Autologous Vasculogenic Stem Cell Mobilization (or stem/progenitor cells) from a patient’s bone marrow has been shown to play a pivotal role in resulting angiogenesis and wound healing. This study aims to quantitatively measure these vasculogenic stem cells released from the patient’s own bone marrow into the blood at 2 ATA versus 2.5 ATA in order to determine if there is any measurable benefit in hyperbaric oxygen treatment at 2.5 ATA over 2 ATA.
