Human Subjects Researchers Take Note: New Review Process
On Nov. 3, 2014, the College of Medicine launched a faculty-based review process for all COM-affiliated human subjects research proposals. This internal process will accomplish three major goals for our College:
- Provide a college-wide support structure to promote excellence in research and facilitate mentorship of students and junior researchers,
- Create a central database to better track and showcase the College’s research efforts,
- Lay the foundation to establish a future Institutional Review Board within and for the College of Medicine, helping support the continued growth of research at our College.
Investigators will access the review process via online submission using the College’s SharePoint Intranet. Details can be found at the CoM Research Advisory Committee website.
