Joint CSUSM/UCSD program, Students enrolled in 1) a joint CSUSM/UCSD program or 2) CSUSM graduate program, and conducting research at a UCSD facility or with a CSUSM-affiliated site/project/population, who plan to involve
human subjects in research are required to obtain approval from either the CSUSM or UCSD Institutional
Review Boards in advance of initiating research. This document describes a cooperative review process
that allows the UCSD and CSUSM Institutional Review Boards (IRB) to rely upon each other to avoid
duplication of effort and reduce burden for investigators, IRB members and staff.
The end of the semester is just a few weeks away and the IRB committee does not meet during the Winter Intersession. You may not receive IRB approval until the Spring 2014 Semester.
