Vanderbilt’s Radioactive Drug Research Committee (RDRC) is authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve research projects involving the use of certain “non-approved” radioactive drugs for pre-Phase 1 research which would otherwise require approval from the FDA in the form of an Investigational New Drug (IND). Use the RDRC application form embedded in the IRB application and guidelines to submit proposals to the RDRC. If you need help in completing and RDRC application and/or estimating the radiation dose, contact the IRB to have the Radiation Dose Calculation Member of the RDRC assist you.
For an application form, a list of radiation doses, or examples of risk statements, please go to the IRB Forms page.
