Institutional Review Board (IRB)
HUMAN SUBJECT PROTECTION EDUCATION
Education in human subject protections is required for all faculty, staff and students directly involved in the conduct of clinical or social and behavioral research. This includes individuals who collect or enter data, individuals who conduct study procedures (including informed consent) or interventions with human subjects, and individuals who use or have access to private information that can be linked to research subjects. This policy applies to all research involving the use of human participants, regardless of funding or scholarship. The policy also applies to both currently active and future research submitted to the USF IRB. All study team members must have current training in order to receive protocol approval from the USF IRB.
