The University, the Institutional Review Board (IRB), and individual investigators share a collective responsibility to ensure that research involving human subjects is guided by the highest ethical standards and is conducted in compliance with federal, state and university regulations governing such research.
To assist the IRB and investigators in meeting these requirements, the OVPR maintains an institutional subscription to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), a resource of online training modules that provides Baylor investigators convenient access to comprehensive and regularly updated human subjects research guidance.
The IRB requires that all investigators complete these core training modules and upload completion certificates with their IRBNet protocol submissions.
