Human subjects?

Answer this question ‘Yes’ if human subjects are involved in the proposal. The University is required to safeguard human participants that are involved in research projects. For any project involving the use of human participants, a protocol must be submitted to the University’s Human Subject Protection Program (HSPP) and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for review and approval. 

The HSPP and IRB ensure that Human Subjects rights and welfare are protected, the risk and potential benefits are weighed accurately, subject selection is fair and that the participants have an informed consent.  Approval is required before any work with Human Subjects is initiated.

Visit the Human Subject Protection Program section of the Research Support website for additional guidance.
