How will I know if my research project requires IRB review?

(Answer provided by Dr. Leody Bojanowski, Oct 2017)

Prospective IRB review is required for research involving human subjects or human participants of research. Human subjects research are activities that include both a systematic investigation designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge AND involve a living individual about whom an investigator conducting research obtains data from identifiable private information or through intervention or interaction with the individual(s). Human subjects research protocols must be submitted in the iRIS electronic IRB submission System (eIRB) in order for it to be reviewed by the IRB.
