Getting started on a research project?

There are two UVA Institutional Review Boards:
IRB-HSR for Health Sciences Research
IRB-SRS for Social & Behavioral Sciences

Information on the University IRB Site can help you determine which IRB applies to your research. The appropriate board must approve all research projects. Get started on the approval process early! A good place to start is the IRB Research Guidance document.

Before participating in any research, you must complete a human subjects research CITI training module (certification good for 3 years).

The IRB has an online Protocol Builder that will create a blank Word template of the appropriate paperwork. Go to the link above, request a password, and create a template.
