This board reviews research studies that involve: behavioral observations/recordings, non-invasive physiological recordings, analysis of documents that were previously gathered for nonresearch purposes, evaluation of behavioral/social interventions or manipulations, educational assessments, interviews, surveys, cognitive tests, and taste/food evaluations of wholesome food within FDA regulations.
The IRB02 can review research conducted by investigators working within all colleges of the University of Florida, including the UF Main Campus, UF Health Science Center, Shands HealthCare, Inc., and the Brain Institute.
