Tissue Banking Management Plans

Data/Biospecimen Repository Management Plan Template Click the link for a guide to the required biospecimen banking management plan elements.  A management plan is required for all research biospecimen banks managed by faculty/staff of the University of Utah, the VA SLCHCS, and Primary Children's Medical Center.  

Example Management Plans

The IRB provides sample management plans that may help investigators to design their own plans. The samples below contain all of the requirements for the study for which they were originally designed. Use of these samples does not guarantee the IRB will approve similar management plans designed for other studies.
