Find Your Fit: Navigating the New IRB Exemption Categories

March 28, 2019 - 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

A substantial revision to the federal policies mandating the protection of human subjects (Common Rule) took place in January 2019. Of particular interest to researchers is a broadening of the Exempt Categories, allowing more types of research to fall into that level of review. For example, benign behavioral interventions conducted with adults may now be exempt (note that researchers must still submit to the IRB for a determination that activities are exempt). Another example is the collection of identifiable, sensitive information from adults. However, this new category requires a limited IRB review to determine that appropriate privacy and confidentiality protections are in place. This seminar will give MSU faculty/researchers insight on where their research fits into the new Exempt Categories. Presenters are Kacey Strickland, MSU director of research compliance, and Nicole Cobb, MSU human research protection programs officer. Responsible Conduct of Research credit will be given for attendance. Click the link below to register for free.
