Research Involving Human Subjects

Application Forms

The IRB will review research involving human subjects to assure that the protocol meets with federal, state, and institutional regulations. There are three different types of reviews for applications: Exempt, Expedited, and Convened (Full) Committee. The appropriate review procedure is determined by federal regulations and applied analysis based on how human subjects are involved in the research. The type of review is based on risk associated with participation in the research, the study intervention/interaction, and how informed consent is obtained and documented. Please see the IRB Application Guidelines for a full explanation of these categories of review.

A research protocol, informed consent statement, and additional supporting documents are required for all research projects submitted for review. Please do not forget to include your IRB Tutorial scores/certificate (for all researchers) every time you submit any type of application.
