The Institutional Review Board (IRB) for the Protection of Human Subjects in
Research oversees all research conducted by faculty, staff, and students that
involves living human beings as participants in a study.
NEW Online Submission System starts September 25. As of that date, NAIRBe will no longer be used for new IRB applications and researchers, students, and faculty will be directed to use our new system, IRBNet (www.IRBNet.org). Online training documents and instructions will be made available. As always, call the IRB office at 928-523-4236 for more information. CITI will remain our resource for training on human subjects research and research ethics.
TRAINING POLICY: All researchers and faculty advisees are required to take the IRB Basics course on the CITI website (www.citiprogram.org) every three years. All personnel funded by NSF or NIH are required to take additional modules under the Responsible Conduct of Research courses. See Responsible Conduct of Research for more information about this important training addition.
To facilitate classroom-based research, use the IRB resources available on Blackboard Learn. The Overview describes the IRB resources for faculty or instructors interested in conducting research on their classes. A Sample IRB Application is also available.
