IRB Guidance for Biomedical Procedures with Human Participants

General Information

A limited number of biomedical procedures are allowed for human participant studies on the Ithaca campus. These procedures must be conducted in a manner that assures the safety and privacy of participants, researchers and the institution. Many of these procedures are conducted in specialized spaces on campus, to assure that safety, privacy and research support are appropriately provided and that trained and qualified personnel are available to conduct the procedures. For detailed information on working with these facilities in your research, click here. Please review the IRB Policy #19 for the policies and general procedures that govern the conduct of any such procedures for research on the Ithaca campus.
