Investigators are required to submit final closeout reports when all of the following apply:

  • Study is permanently closed to enrollment
  • Participants have completed all research activities
  • Collection and analysis of identifiable information is complete


We recommend reviewing the following documents from the HRPP Toolkit Library:

  • How to Close Studies
    Step-by-step instructions for submitting a study closure report.
  • Investigator Manual (HRP-103)
    Comprehensive guide of all policies, procedures, and resources related to the conduct of human research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
