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).
