Reporting Research Involving Human Subjects
|Oversight Unit:||GRADUATE EDUCATION & RESEARCH|
The purpose of this policy is to provide assurance that Northern Michigan University is compliant with HHS Regulations regarding the Protection of Human Research Subjects.
All faculty, staff and students.
To comply with federal regulations, Northern Michigan University has established policies and procedures for the protection of human subjects in research. These policies established the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and a reporting and review procedure for all University research and experiments involving human subjects. The documents detailing these policies and procedures are available in the Office of Graduate Studies and Research or at the web site: www.nmu.edu/research. All faculty, students, and staff engaged or planning to engage in research activities involving human subjects are responsible for reporting these activities through the procedures outlined below:
These procedures were developed not only to protect human subjects, but also to protect members of the University community from liability. In essence the polices protect both the subjects and the investigator. Faculty and staff are responsible for submitting reports of their activities for departmental and IRB committee review. Faculty are further responsible for submitting reports on student projects conducted under their supervision or as part of their class assignments and faculty/staff advisors are responsible for submitting reports for projects conducted in student or University organizations.
