Staff from the Office of the Protection of Human Subjects and the Office of Undergraduate Research will present on how undergraduates should prepare a proposal (protocol) to receive approval for human subjects related research projects.

This workshop provides a discussion of federal regulations overseeing human subjects research, levels of review and application submission guidance. Specific topics will be covered including, but not limited to, types of research requiring IRB review, informed consent, data security requirements, online research issues, investigator training, and information on how to navigate the eProtocol online application system. This workshop is targeted toward undergraduate students applying to programs such as the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) or the Haas Scholars Program whose research involves human subjects.

Open discussion/Q&A to follow. Attendees are encouraged to begin working on their human subjects protocol before attending this workshop and to come prepared with questions.
