Human Research Protection Program

IRB Q & A and Training Schedule

The HRPP is offering IRB trainings to support student, staff and faculty researchers who conduct research with human subjects. It is not mandatory but is encouraged if you are not familiar with the IRB process, federal regulations, UToledo policy, HRPP procedures, or best practices. 

The primary audience for the application training is those who have a clear research plan and need some guidance ensuring their procedures are in compliance with IRB approval procedure, providing the information in each application question that is needed for the IRB to make a determination, and general IRB Manager navigation. Please feel free to come with specific questions as this training is meant to not only provide a baseline understanding but to also help you in completing your application. This training is NOT to learn the IRB Manager system. Additionally, this is NOT the required human subjects training through CITI that all researchers who conduct research which human subjects must take. You may attend this training multiple times but class sizes are limited to ensure that we can give individualized attention where needed.

The primary audience for the amendment training is those who need to modify IRB approved face-to-face interactions to remote data collection methods.  We will discuss how this may impact recruitment, obtaining informed consent and allowable remote data collection tools.  Please come with a clear plan and specific questions.
