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.
IRB Fall Seminar
Tuesday, September 16, 2014
This seminar will provide beneficial information to both new and seasoned researchers, as well as anyone who signs into IRBNet as an advisor or department representative.
Among topics to be discussed are the role of the Institutional Review Board, requirements for a Principal Investigator, and accessing IRBNet and CITI for research purposes. The AVPR, Director of Compliance and the IRB Chair and Vice-Chair will be on hand to present information and respond to questions.
Additionally, the presenters will address the new submission and follow-up forms that will go into effect by this fall.
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.
