Workshops on the IRB Process
Workshop: Introduction to the IRB Process
Offered through the Center for Faculty Development, this workshop provides an overview of the process for submitting proposals to conduct research involving human participants. Participants will learn the request for review process, what forms, materials, and training are required, and where to find all of the resources they will need to submit a request for review.
Workshop: Mentoring Students Through the IRB Process
Workshop participants will:
• Learn how to simplify the IRB Request for Review Process for student research in order to facilitate protocol approvals and support faculty in spending more time teaching important aspects of research design and less time on paperwork.
• Find out the difference between class projects and student research.
• Be informed of current IRB policies and rationale, including reasons why students are no longer approved as Principal Investigators.
• Take home scripts of text for some sections of the Request for Review.
• Find out more about the CITI Program training.
• Be directed to resources for teaching students about human subjects protections.
About the Presenters: Ann Morrison is the Chair of the MSU Denver IRB and Courtney Rocheleau is an Assistant Professor who led 40 students through the IRB process in Fall 2012.
Student Attendance at IRB Workshops Offered through the Center for Faculty Development
One student investigator may accompany their Principal Investigator to an IRB workshop. Students are not invited to attend IRB workshops without their Principal Investigator. Students are asked to respect that IRB workshops offered through the Center for Faculty Development are intended for faculty and not a classroom opportunity.
