The University of Pennsylvania has a complex collaborative program for ensuring research compliance and protecting human research subjects. IRB review and approval is just one of many approvals that may be needed to begin a new study. The IRB has developed a tool that will allow you to create a "To Do List" regarding necessary ancillary approvals based on the design of your study. With the information obtained here you may work with these other groups while simultaneously obtaining IRB approval instead of waiting for the IRB to stipulate various additional approvals. Links to the tool are available on the front page, as well as on the How to Submit page.
