Use the Secondary Research Application form for research involving ONLY the analysis of data sets or biological specimens. The data or specimens must have been or will be collected for some other purpose (e.g., for clinical care or as part of another study), and you will not contact subjects. You will be asking for a waiver of informed consent and, if PHI are used, a waiver of HIPAA authorization. If you have questions, contact COMIRB@ucdenver.edu.
