Research activities require review by the IRB or an exempt determination if it meets the regulatory definition of human subjects research. To help determine whether your activities meet this definition, you may contact ORC and/or use the following tools:
"Is This Human Subjects Research?" – A guide for researchers
Decision Tree – Does your project require an application to Baylor IRB?
Worksheet – Determination of non-human subject research form
Submission Requirements for all initial reviews of exempt, expedited, and full board research.
