Human Subjects

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. When non-human models are insufficient, 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.

Accordingly, to protect the rights and welfare of every human subject involved in research activities, UNH has a policy on the use of human subjects in research and an Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB) that oversees the program of protecting human subjects at UNH according to established procedures.
