News for Researchers

Posted September 28, 2018 by Ashley Washburn

The Institutional Review Board regularly offers training opportunities and resources that provide Nebraska researchers with the most current information available for the responsible conduct of research.

Save the date: Common Rule training, Nov. 30
To help Nebraska researchers prepare for anticipated changes to the federal Common Rule, IRB is hosting a training session from 1-2 p.m. Nov. 30. Based on information from the federal Office of Human Research Protections, the university is planning for the significant possibility that changes will move forward as planned on Jan. 21, 2019, following several delays. Training details will be posted on the IRB’s Changes to the Common Rule website as they become available.

An archived video of “When Do You Need IRB Approval: Collaborators, Data and Biospecimens” is available to anyone who was unable to attend the in-person training in July. Download or watch the video here. The training focuses on ways in which IRB approval may or may not be needed and how to complete funding proposal information. James Takacs, Charles Mach University Professor of chemistry, offers firsthand expertise and advice from the principal investigator’s perspective.
