Informed Consent

Participation in any human subjects research must be informed and voluntary. In such cases where a participant is unable to give his/her own consent, a legally authorized representative must give consent on his/her behalf (e.g. a parent consenting to an infant’s participation in a study). See the Informed Consent Checklist from the HHS Office of Human Research Protections for the required elements of an Informed Consent Form.

Reporting Concerns

Anyone having concerns about the safety, health or welfare of participants in human subjects research should contact the Director of Research Integrity and Compliance, the IRB Coordinator, or any member of the IRB. Confidentiality requests will be honored to the extent permitted by state and federal law, and by university policy.
