  • Human SubjectLiving individual about whom an investigator (whether professional or student) conducting research obtains:data through intervention or interaction with the individual, oridentifiable private information.45 CFR 46.102.(f)

  • ResearchA systematic investigation, including research development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.45 CFR 46.102.(d)

  • Examples of researchClinical Trials (therapeutic research) Survey, observational, or educational researchIRB APPROVAL REQUIREDReview of medical records or databasesTissue or dataIdentifiable vs coded vs anonymousExisiting?

  • REQUIRED: All ResearchResearch must be approved before being conducted

  • Review Process

  • Indefinite Plans / Non-humanResearch involves human tissue, data, etc., butNO interaction or intervention with living person, ANDNO exposure to or collection of privately identifiable data

  • ExemptInteraction/intervention with living individual or their identifiable dataSurvey, observational, educational researchEither no risk to subject, orIf potential risk recorded anonymouslySurvey does not collect identifiers

  • ExemptReview of existing data, documents, records or specimens that is recorded anonymously :All data exists BEFORE submissionResearcher sees identifiers, but collects data such that it cannot be linked back to subject17 HIPAA identifiers apply No codes or links, permanent or temporary

  • ExpeditedInteraction/intervention with living individual or their identifiable data

    Prospective minimal risk researchCollection of data from voice, video, digital, or image recordings made for research purposes.Research on individual or group characteristics or behavior (including, but not limited to, research on perception, cognition, motivation, identity, language, communication, cultural beliefs or practices, and social behavior) or research employing survey, interview, oral history, focus group, program evaluation, human factors evaluation, or quality assurance methodologies.

  • ExpeditedApproved for a maximum of 1 yearmust obtain approval for Continuing Review Adverse Events

    Researcher can do more, so more protection needed.

  • Full BoardRequired if Greater than Minimal RiskUse of vulnerable populations*Data collection on:Conditions that can affect insurability, employability, reputationCriminal activity, drugs, sexual misconductTherapeutic research / Radiation / X-ray / Genetics
