Q. What is the purpose of this list?
The purpose is to provide a single, web-accessible database documenting NIH- and institution-required human subjects training of key research personnel at:
- Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC)
- University of Washington (UW)
Q. Who maintains this Web section?
This Web section is maintained by FHCRC and includes training information from UW.
Q. What people and institutions are on the list?
Faculty, staff and students of the three institutions who have completed acceptable training Faculty, staff and students of other institutions who have been trained as guests by one of the three institutions
Q. Are other institution's training documentation available here?
Plans are under discussion to include training documentation for other research institutions in the Seattle area.
Q. What kinds of training are accepted?
The institutions differ slightly in the training they accept and document. All three accept in-person sessions offered through FHCRC and UW, and the CITI web-based course offered through the University of Miami. Additionally:
- FHCRC accept and document whatever training outside consultants and sub-contractors receive at their home institutions. (At UW, such outside training is accepted, but is not listed in this database. It is documented by the UW academic department that houses the grant or study that lists that consultant or subcontractor as key personnel.)
- UW accepts training offered by Seattle Children's.
- Each institution may have other exceptions and special cases-check with the contact person listed below.
Q. What do I do if an expected person is not on this list?
Since this list is a compendium of information from the 2 institutions, you will need to contact the training coordinator at that person's home institution. Sometimes the training coordinator at the institution that provided the training — when that is not the same as home institution — will also be able to help. See the list of training coordinators.
Q. Where do I find information about letters documenting training?
Each contributing institution handles this in a different way, so again, contact the appropriate training coordinator. This web site is not a source for such letters.
For people trained through the UW, information about letters documenting training is available at http://www.washington.edu/research/hsd/training_status.php
