6.4 Research Involving Human Subjects

Each proposed human subjects research protocol involving the research-related use of radioactive material and/or other sources of ionizing radiation (i.e., not clinically indicated procedures) requires the approval of the University’s Investigational Review Board (IRB).  Completion of the Human Subjects Review Application process allows the investigator to determine whether or not completion of the Medical Radiation Protection Committee Research Application Form and review by the Medical Radiation Protection Committee (MRPC) is also required.  Human Subjects application forms are available from the Human Subjects Office (335-6564).  MRPC application forms are available from the EHS Website
The use of radioactive materials for research use is permitted only by or under the supervision of an authorized user approved by the HRSRG.  For additional information regarding MRPC review policies and forms, contact the Radiation Safety Officer at 335-8517.
