Human subject research ethics, regulations, and policies are not only broad but also sometimes convoluted, confusing, or seemingly contradictory. One of the ways the IRB can accomplish its primary mission of protecting the rights and welfare of human research subjects is by helping researchers insure their research is conducted according to the appropriate ethical, regulatory, and policy requirements.
The help topics on the left are meant to provide basic instructions on important topics. Neither this list nor the information provided is all inclusive. Instead, these help topics better serve as an introductory guide to help researchers understand what is needed. Additional information is contained throughout our website, forms, policies and procedures, etc. Researchers are always encouraged to contact the IRB-01 office with any questions:firstname.lastname@example.org or (352) 273-9600.
