Human Subjects Protections/IRB
The University of Rhode Island Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews research projects which involve human subjects to ensure that two broad standards are upheld: first, that subjects are not placed at undue risk; second, that they give uncoerced, informed consent to their participation.
With representation from a wide range of scientific disciplines and from outside the academic community, the IRB gives individualized attention to the numerous research projects at the University.
URI’s Human Research Protection Program operates under Federalwide Assurance # FWA00003132.
IRB 101 is a Beginners Workshop geared toward graduate students and new faculty. The session will provide a brief overview of the history and regulations of human subjects research protection and a brief introduction to URI’s IRB submission system, www.irbnet.org. The next session is being planned, and once scheduled, a registration form for that event will be posted here.
