How does the USU IRB/HRPP office work with the other research offices at USU?

The USU IRB/HRPP and the USU Office of Research are operationally independent with separate functions. The IRB/HRPP is mainly responsible for the ethical and regulatory review of the research. Human research projects should only be submitted for IRB review once the PI has received approval and recommendation for IRB review from the Office of Research including a fully signed USU Form 3208 or 3202.
