Presenter: Julie Simpson, Research Integrity Services
The University of New Hampshire (UNH) recognizes its responsibility to produce and disseminate knowledge in accordance with its mission of research, teaching, and public service. The use of human subjects in research is an integral aspect of scholarly activity at UNH. UNH recognizes its ethical and legal responsibilities to provide a mechanism to protect individuals involved as subjects in research conducted under the auspices of UNH.
In this session, participants will learn about UNH’s program for the protection of human subjects in research, including UNH’s Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB). At UNH, the primary purpose of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects by ensuring that risks to subjects are minimized, and when present, justified by the importance of the research, and agreed to by subjects (informed consent). Further, participants will learn about forthcoming changes to the human subjects federal regulations.
