Will you be conducting research in the near future? Does your research involve human subjects? Would you like some help navigating the IRB? 

This course will provide researchers with information about what the IRB is looking for in a research protocol. We will review the 11 approval criteria used by the IRB and outline effective ways to include the necessary information using the Virginia Tech human subjects research protocol template. Participants will have the opportunity to complete items on the template based on their own research projects. An IRB member and HRPP staff will be available to provide feedback and answer questions. This is planned as a 3 hour course with the last hour devoted to consultation on participants' research projects. This course is being presented by the Statistical Applications and Innovations Group (SAIG) and the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP).
