IRB Policies and Procedures
Step 1 – Does my Project Need IRB Approval?
All University of Idaho individuals whose activities meet both the definition of “human subjects” and of “research” are required to submit a Human Subjects Application Form to the Institutional Review Board and obtain approval or exempt certification prior to engaging in human subjects/participants research activities. If you are unsure whether IRB approval is required for your project, contact the IRB office at email@example.com or 208-885-6340.
Note:Have a question about the portal submission process?
Contact the IRB Coordinator – firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-885-6340
- Students are not eligible to serve as PI on IRB protocols. Their faculty sponsor can serve in this role to oversee the project.
- Review the APM 45.22 policy for PI eligibility requirement.
We are implementing a three-year expiration date on all human subjects training beginning Jan. 1, 2016. After this date, protocols may be held for approval until the training has been updated.
Final approval is granted once the following have been completed:
Please confirm that your protocol has been approved before conducting any human subjects research. Feel free to contact email@example.com if you have any questions about the status of your protocol.
Amendments may include, but are not limited to, changes in procedures/methods, personnel, participant population (age range, number), recruitment methods, survey/interview questions and consent/assent documents.
The PI or study contact is responsible for requesting an annual renewal of a protocol or closing the protocol when complete using the “Continuing Review and Closure Form” in VERAS. The VERAS system will send reminder emails 60 and 30 days in advance of annual protocol expiration.
Noncompliance will be reported to applicable oversight agencies, in accordance with DHHS, OHRP, FDA and funding sponsor agreements.
Please close out all protocols once the project is complete. This can be completed by using the “Continuing Review and Closure Form” in VERAS.
