Negotiating the IRB Maze: UA Human Subjects Protection & Research Processes

MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013
3:30-4:30 PM
Co-sponsored by Middle East and North Africa Graduate Student Organization

What do you need to do before conducting research involving human subjects in order to comply with UA regulations? 

All prospective researchers must undergo online training to demonstrate that they understand their ethical and legal obligations to protect participants; issues include "informed consent," risks to the health or safety of participants, and related ethical considerations.  Completing the training is the first step in the process.  Subsequently, you must apply for approval from the UA’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) before beginning your research.

Hear from and have the opportunity to ask questions of:

Mariette Marsh, Assistant Director, UA Human Subjects Protection Program/Education and Outreach

Danielle van Dobben, PhD candidate, School of Anthropology and School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies
