Faculty serving as faculty sponsor for ALL student research projects (exempt and non-exempt) are required to complete human subjects research training before student human subjects research can begin.  Faculty must attach their current (un-expired) certification to their faculty sponsor forms for both original applications and modification requests.  Please check the date on your certificate before uploading.


 

HUMAN SUBJECTS TRAINING FOR INVESTIGATORS

All investigators on non-exempt research projects are required to complete human subjects research training before human subjects research can begin.  You must attach the current (un-expired) certification for ALL investigators with this protocol application. Please see the Training page for more information. 

Human subjects research training is recommended for exempt research but not mandatory at this time.  If, however, a request for exemption is deemed to be non-exempt, training must be completed prior to approval.
