Research Involving Human Subjects

All research projects—funded or unfunded, originated at or supported by UW-Platteville—that involve humans as participants, or data or materials derived from humans, must be reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board for Human Subject Research (IRB) before the research is initiated.

Students must prepare a research protocol, describing their project and addressing human participant issues, and then submit the protocol to the IRB Chair for review.

Students may obtain a Manual of Policies and Procedures to review research involving human participants from the Chair of the IRB, the Office of Sponsored Programs (608.342.1456), or online at Other IRB information, including protocol forms and names of the IRB committee members, may also be found online.
