Research Involving Human Subjects IRB

Dear research community,

In line with current CDC, governmental, and campus guidance, we are updating IRB processes and procedures for approval of in-person human subjects research studies. These processes and procedures will remain in place until further notice.

To resume a halted project or begin a new project involving in-person human subjects research, please submit an IRB application or Request for Change application along with the updated safety plan/permission form found on this page.

Your safety plan must include either provisions for masks for all research personnel and participants or a system for verification/attestation of vaccination status for unmasked participants and research personnel. Your plan will still need to be approved by the Associate Vice Chancellor for Research. Please continue to use the most recent consent template containing COVID-19 specific language.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
