Planning on presenting your research at the UTC Spring or Fall Research Conference?
Remember, all research with human subjects must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to collecting your data.
This means, if you plan to present at the UTC Spring or Fall Research Conference and you intend to conduct research with Human Subjects, your project must be approved by the UTC IRB before you begin your research.
Approval is required prior to starting your data collection, not just prior to presenting your results at Research Dialogues.
If you are unsure if you want to present at the UTC Spring or Fall Research Conference but you may be interested, go ahead and get your project approved now, before you begin your research project. That way you won’t find yourself sitting on great results and unable to present them at the UTC Spring or Fall Research Conference or another conference because you didn’t secure IRB approval before you started your research.
