Starting January 7th, 2013: Required Training for IRB-01
If you are involved in research with human subjects, their tissue, or data, you must complete the following three required training requirements. After January 7th, 2013 IRB-01 will not accept new protocols via the myIRB system unless all of the training has been completed and is up to date.
Our IRB-01 Training document details the following information below and also includes a work flow diagram that explains why it takes several days for training to update in the system, as well as how to access training records and protocol status via the Office of Research web based reports: http://irb.ufl.edu/docs/trainingflow.docx.
Required Reading for All Researchers & Research Staff
If you are involved in research with human subjects, you are required to read the following documents:
1. Belmont Report: The Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) considers it unethical for anyone involved in human subject research not to have read the Belmont Report. It describes and explains the ethical principles that should be followed by such investigators: respect for persons, beneficence and justice.
2. Code of Federal Regulations: All human subject researchers must read 45 CFR 46. This document is the Federal regulation that describes the authority and responsibility of Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) in protecting human subjects.
3. IRB Policies & Procedures: All researchers must read and follow the Policies & Procedures for each IRB they wish to submit research to.
4. Researcher Responsibilities: All researchers must read and observe these responsibilities.
