IRB Training WEBINAR: Human Participant Research - When Does Research Require IRB Review?
April 27 2015 at 12:00 PM
Webinar
IRB Training Sessions are open to all students, faculty and affiliated staff interested in learning about IRB review of research. Learn about making determinations as to whether or not a research project or research activities require IRB review according to the federal regulations. We will discuss examples of both research that must be submitted for review and those activities that can be conducted without IRB review and approval. We will also review available tools that are useful for making these determinations. There are clear examples of research known to not require IRB review, and some cases, when the IRB Administration Office should assist in making the determination. Come and find out the appropriate questions that you should ask about your research project! When: Monday, April 27, 2015, 12 pm – 1 pmWhere: Your desk, a link to access the session in GoToMeeting will be sent after registrationSpeaker: Ray-Nitra Pugh, CIP, Education Coordinator, IRB Administration Office
