Application for Approval for Research Involving Human Subjects: Projects Conducted in Partial Fulfillment of Course Requirements
FOR FACULTY ONLY
This form is used by investigators with IRB approval at their home site who would like to use a CSUSM population.
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.
