Why is IRB training required?
The NIH requires training in the protection of human research participants for all investigators receiving awards for research involving human subjects (
As part of its Federalwide Assurance, UAB has extended the training requirement to all research that involves human subjects, regardless of the funding source for the research.
All individuals involved in research on human subjects must complete an initial, approved training course on human subjects protection and must update their training annually. This requirement applies to
Principal Investigators, key personnel, and any study personnel
. Key personnel are those engaged in the design, conduct, analysis, or reporting of research. The IRB will not approve any protocol unless all listed Principal Investigators have completed or updated their training, as applicable.
