All human subjects’ research must be approved by the IRB before the data collection can start. PIs are responsible for submitting applications with enough lead time.

The following items should be considered:

  1. Is the proposed project human subject’s research?

  2. Is the proposed project Exempt/Expedited/Full Review?

  3. All PIs should do the Human subjects research training in Citi program.

  4. All applications are submitted through Ideate



The IRB will hold office hours in February on Mondays, 2-4 p.m. or by appointment for one-on-one assistance with IDEATE in Room A-504
