Obtaining Permission to Conduct Research

Topic Details


Before you embark on your research journey, you will need to submit your research protocols to either the Institutional Review Board (for research involving humans) or the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (for research involving animals). Whether you expect any harms or risks will impact your participants, it is vital to obtain institutional approval over your work to protect yourself, your participants, as well as your institution from any undue burdens, harm, or appearance of impropriety. In this session we will highlight the basics of research ethics, the need for CITI training, and how to create/submit research protocols for approval. Attendees will fill out sample IRB/IACUC forms to get practice creating research protocols.
