VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Application and Approval Process

The general application, review, and approval process is the same whether the protocol is for the use of vertebrate animals for teaching or research purposes. The use of animals for research purposes, however, includes the additional step of peer review for scientific merit if such a review has not already occurred during the funding process. Applications of students wanting to conduct independent studies projects (e.g. BIOL 490/491 & FISH 491) will follow the Research Protocol process.

The application process is completed through the ROMEO research portal.
