Criteria for Review

Below are the criteria by which your protocol will be reviewed, as required by the federal regulations.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with these principles so that you can design your research project to maximally protect the human subjects who will be participating in your research and write your Initial Protocol accordingly. 

Note that these criteria apply to all human subjects research, regardless of review level (i.e., exempt, expedited, full committee).
