27. How to Close Out a Study?

Study closure is appropriate when (a) the research is permanently closed to enrollment; (b) all participants have completed all research-related interventions/interactions; (c) collection of private identifiable information is completed, and (d) analyses of private identifiable information is completed.  Under close-out status, analyses of de-identified data can occur indefinitely.


To request closure, complete Study Completion Form and submit it to the IRB along with any relevant attachments.
