NOTE FOR EDUCATION RESEARCHERS: Due to the volume of Millersville education students undertaking research in local public schools, principals and school district administrators require the MU IRB provide a full review of all protocols involving public school students. Furthermore, all protocols for school-based research requires a letter of support from the school principal or relevant administrator. This letter must accompany the protocol and must be printed on school letterhead.
All applicants for IRB approval are required to complete CITI training in Human Subjects Research.
CITI Training now available for IRB RESPONSIBLE, CONDUCT OF RESEARCH, and IACUC. Press the button above to set up an account or click HERE to start.
PROTOCOLS MAY TAKE UP TO 30 DAYS TO REVIEW AND APPROVE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
