The use of human subjects in research is extremely important to the development of new knowledge in many areas. However, careful attention must be given to questions of ethics and human dignity whenever human subjects participate in research.
All research involving human subjects (including course projects, capstone projects, master’s theses, and independent student research) must be formally reviewed and approved before any data are collected.
External Researchers and Organizations Seeking IRB Approval – Thank you for your interest to include UIS students and employees in your research. We value human subjects research on this campus and encourage collaboration with our academic professionals and staff members. Please send us a copy of the IRB approval letter from your institution along with all the other necessary documents you submitted to your IRB (this should include your proposal, consent documents, applications, material, interview questions, surveys etc.) This information will be used as part of our internal review by our IRB. You may submit your information electronically at email@example.com.
Research protocols should be submitted to Mail Stop PAC 525, Attention Donald Long. The level of review required of each protocol (exempt, expedited, or full IRB review) will be determined by the UIS Human Subjects Review Officer.
