Faculty Research Involving Human Participants
Faculty research involving human participants
Depending on the type of application, faculty members engaging in research that involves the use of human participants are required either to provide IRB-related approval as a component of their grant application or sign a statement acknowledging that they will secure approval before beginning the research.
Please be aware that this process can take a month or longer, depending upon the level of review. Departmental IRB designates, IRB members, or Associate Dean Lisa Ferrari can answer questions related to IRB approval.
- What type of review do I need?
Depending on the level of risk and type of participant, research studies are classified as needing full, expedited, or exempt review. Of special note, all research conducted outside of the United States, irrespective of review type, requires co-review by the departmental designate and the Chair of the IRB.
