Human Subjects Research 101: From Inspiration to Approval!

Posted: September 1, 2020

Are you new to human subjects research and in need of information to help you navigate the submission and review processes? If so, the Office of Responsible Research Practices and the Research Commons are offering an introductory presentation for you or anyone who needs a refresher. By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain why we have an IRB process
  • List types of human subjects research and levels of review
  • Outline Ohio State’s IRB review process, from pre-submission to approval
  • Generate an action plan for completing a successful Buck-IRB application

While the session will be tailored to new social and behavioral sciences researchers and graduate students, anyone preparing IRB submissions is welcome. The session will be held on Wednesday, September 23 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. via CarmenZoom.

Registration requested.
