All campus research that involves the use of human subjects or animals must be reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board or the Animal Research Committee, respectively. This policy applies to both funded and non-funded faculty and student research. Any individual research project that involves human subjects or animals must be approved by the appropriate committee prior to initiation of the research. For additional information, visit or contact Sponsored Programs and Research, 203 Eppley Administration Building.
PLEASE NOTE: All personnel engaged in human subjects research must undergo training in the protection of human subjects. The Institutional Review Board will not approve an application until all key personnel are trained and certified. This includes both non-exempt and exempt human subjects. The Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI) is a web-based training course available through the Sponsored Programs & Research web page.
