Q: I am a Carilion employee who wants to do research. How do I start?
A: If you are a Carilion employee, then you should have access to the Carilion intranet. On the intranet, you will find step by step procedures on the Office of Sponsored Project's website. If your research will involve human subjects, you will also need Institutional Review Board approval. You can find their application on the intranet or the internet.

Q: I am a graduate student from another institution and I would like to use Carilion patients to complete my dissertation work. How do I get started?
