Human Subject Review
Per Federal regulations as prescribed in 45 CFR Part 46, any faculty, student and/or administrator/staff planning to engage in research involving human subjects must receive approval from the Siena College Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to initiating any research activities, on or off campus.
Currently, the IRB employs two (2) types of review depending on the degree of risk to subject(s): expedited and full review.
Beginning on January 17, 2012, the IRB will consider IRB applications under Exemption Review. Below is the link to the Exemption Review policy with definitions of the six (6) Federally defined exemption categories.
