There are two consent instruments that must both be used to obtain consent to participation in any biorepository project:
- a text-only informed consent document
- an illustrated informational sheet
Use the blue buttons below to download both types of consent instruments to use in your informed consent process.
If you are intending to utilize the University of Michigan Medical School Central Biorepository (CBR) to process, store, and distribute your specimens, visit the UMMS Central Biorepository website for further information. Participating projects are required to use the CBR’s master consent templates.
Biorepository text-only Informed Consent Template (with instructions) — Required Reading This document provides detailed instructions for completing the template, including required language, alternate text, and information about sections that may be altered. These instructions are to guide and assist you in completing the University of Michigan Informed Consent Template prior to submitting it to the IRBMED for review. Investigators are responsible for understanding and following all instructions.
Below, select one of the two templates, depending on the type of repository you plan to submit to:
- the UM Medical School's Central Biorepostitory
- a non-CBR repository you plan to maintain yourself
