2.1 Education/Training

The IRB helps educate the Texas Tech community generally about issues of human subjects research ethics. Principal Investigators on NIH and NSF projects are required to document the completion of training on human subjects protection for themselves and for key personnel at the time a proposal is submitted. Other investigators are encouraged to complete the same training. In any case, all investigators and members of their research teams are required to be familiar with The Belmont Report and the federal regulations at 45 CFR 46.

Here are links to two on-line training programs:

  1. NIH Training: Website training for social and behavioral sciences research with human subjects.
