New Training Requirement for IRB Applicants (Effective 9/1/2011)

New Training Requirement for IRB Applicants (Effective 9/1/2011)

May 13, 2011

The UNH Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB) is instituting a training requirement for any individual who submits an application for approval to use human subjects in research. 

Effective September 1, 2011, applications to the UNH IRB must include for the project director (applicant) documentation of completion of the UNH Web-based training on human subjects protections*.  The UNH IRB will not review applications missing this documentation.  (IRB application materials will be revised in the late summer of 2011 to reflect this requirement.)

The training module takes approximately 30 minutes, and is available at http://www.unh.edu/rcr/HumSubj-Title.htm.  Individuals who certify their completion of the module at the end will receive an email containing the necessary documentation to be submitted as part of the IRB application after September 1, 2011.

Please contact Julie Simpson in UNH Research Integrity Services at 603/862-2003 with any questions about the training requirement or the documentation of completion of training.  Information about the IRB is available at /research/human-subjects.

* The UNH IRB will accept documentation of completion of the UNH National Institutes of Health (NIH) human subjects protections training as well.
