Human Subjects Research (HSR) and You


Contributed by MaryAnn Taylor

The following is contributed on behalf of Wade Pickren, PhD, Director of Sponsored Research:

The All-College Review Board for Human Subjects Research (HSR) is responsible for reviewing all college research and teaching activities (i.e. surveys) conducted by faculty, staff, and students that involve the use of human subjects.

If you are uncertain whether your project requires review, or if you plan to submit an HSR proposal in the coming semester, please visit the All-College Review Board on Human Subjects Research  website under “H” in the directory.

You will find application forms, examples and instructions, proposal submission deadlines, committee meeting dates and a listing of members.  

Additional support for preparing and submitting proposals is available.  Please contact for assistance.

In addition, HSR welcomes new Board members Miranda Kaye and Pablo Calvi and also congratulates Melinda Cozzolino for continuing in her appointment as chair.

Finally, all federally funded faculty and student researches must complete CITI training in the ethical and responsible conduct of research.  Additional information is available by contacting or at 4-3113.
