Human Subjects Guidelines. The Guidelines walk the researcher step by step through the process.

Applications:

1. Not Human Subjects Research Determination - To determine whether or not an IRB review is required, the research activity and human subjects involvement must be evaluated. This form and the IRB staff can help you. When a formal "not human subjects determination" letter is needed, submit this application and an IRB compliance officer will help you.

2. Exempt Application  - Exempt research is where the subjects are ususally anonymous and never experience more than minimal risk.

3. Expedited Review Application - These applications are typically for research which obtains individually identifyable information, have an action or intervention component and never experience more than minimal risk.

4. Full Review Application - Full reviews address research that has interventions associated with greater than minimal risks or includes protected populations including minors, pregnant women, fetuses or prisoners. It is highly recommended that you meet with the IRB compliance officer for assistance prior to this type of submission.

Application process:

1. Submission of your application and supporting documents should be sent to researchreview@ucmo.edu. Attach required materials including surveys, informed consent documents, letters of permission and recruitment text. Student researchers are to cc their advisor when submitting an application. Full review protocols must be received at least five working days prior to the meeting date. Not human subjects research determination, exempt and expedited proposals man be submitted at any time.

2. CITI Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training certificate is required prior to approval. We will respond with a return email confirming that we have received your application. Reviewers' decisions generally take about two weeks.

3. When the study is done or needs renewal, complete this: Project Status Form to document the number of subjects and any adverse events the subjects experienced.
