On April 9, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Institutional Review Board will present a training session focused on National Institutes of Health proposal submissions and IRB requirements.
Registration is required for the event, set for noon-1 p.m. in the Nebraska Union, Heritage Room, 1400 R St. Snacks will be provided, and attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch.
By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:
- Identify if a project requires completion of the human subjects section in an NIH proposal, including the use of secondary data or biospecimens.
- Identify if a proposal is subject to single IRB requirements, including whether the project meets the definition of a multisite study or cooperative research.
- Navigate and plan for the UNL IRB review process during the time of NIH proposal submission and notice of award.
Participants also will hear from colleagues experienced with the NIH submission process. Presenters include Andy Benson, Food for Health Presidential Chair, director of the Nebraska Food for Health Center and professor of food science and technology; David DiLillo, professor of psychology; and Jacques Izard, associate professor of food science and technology.
