If a project is accepted into the ICR, a private workspace is automatically generated for all members of that study group. This feature is designed to promote collaborate by providing an easy method to share updates and progress. This may include, but is not limited to changes to an IRB, modified consent documents, and posting rights to a forum where one can ask project specific questions. All materials are easily downloaded, either alone or in batch through an intuitive website design.

*If the IRB requests further information about the repository, please use this language to provide context.  The ICR is approved by the UCLA IRB#21-002116

Statement of data to include in the Infrastructure for Collaborative Research (ICR):

Data collected during this study will be included in the Infrastructure for Collaborative Research (ICR) data repository at UCLA. The purpose of this study is to create a data repository that promotes collaborative research related to Autism. UCLA does not maintain control over any study-specific activities, and the UCLA IRB is not set up for a reliance structure. With regards to this study, UCLA will host and manage a REDCap database for data collection and serve as a data repository for data collected [insert name of institution]. UCLA collaborates with a number of academic institutions. Identified data will be uploaded to a secure database managed by UCLA that can be accessed for data analysis efforts regarding Autism.

**If the IRB requires further context beyond the lay summary, please contact ICR Staff at or your fellow collaborators on the project workspace.
