Texas Tech University

Let’s Get Started

Below is a list of suggestions on how to get started, resources needed and an overview of the submission process.

  • All research involving human subjects at Texas Tech must be reviewed by the IRB.
  • The TTU IRB recommends researchers conducting human subjects studies complete some form of training.
  • A quick read of the Belmont Report and a scan of the federal regulations will provide a foundation for your overall research endeavors.
  • From here on, information you will need is based upon your specific research project. Follow the step-by-step instructions provided.
  • During this process you will need to assemble the forms, write your proposal narrative, and attach your supporting documentation.
  • The final step in the process is to submit your human subjects research proposal to the IRB.
  • If, however, you cannot find the answer to your questions on this website, please feel free to contact the HRPP staff at (806) 742-2064.
