The following categories of research may require IRB Committee Review:

  • Studies for which the level of risk is determined by the IRB Chair, Committee Member or IRB Administrator to be greater than minimal.
  • Studies that involve the intentional deception of subjects, such that misleading or untruthful information will be provided to participants.
  • Studies that involve sensitive or protected populations, such as children or cognitively disabled individuals.
  • Studies that plan to use procedures that are personally intrusive, stressful, or potentially traumatic (stress can be physical, psychological, social, financial or legal).
