Student Researchers

To help student researchers compile their IRB protocols, we’ve prepared this webpage to be used — in conjunction with the rest of the HRPP website — as a guide. 

Supervised researchers are defined by Brandeis University as undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and other staff not qualified to serve as PI (see "Who may serve as Principal Investigator" below) who are conducting human subjects research under the auspices of Brandeis University. Supervised researchers are investigating their own research questions, typically for a thesis or dissertation, under the supervision of a qualified principal investigator.
