MSOE Institutional Review Board (MSOE IRB) has jurisdiction over
Human subject researchers (e.g. investigators) at MSOE comply with requirements set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations known as the “Common Rule” as well as Wisconsin State laws and MSOE policies. Federally funded multi-site studies requiring single IRB (sIRB) review involve coordinated local oversight by and advanced planning with the MSOE IRB office. In any study, if investigators intend to recruit study participants from locations outside of the United States, the primary investigator (PI) must first secure written approval from MSOE IRB prior to contacting research officials in other countries.
Additional details on regulations are available on the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services website. Please also review the Human Subject Regulations Decision Charts for information on how MSOE IRB determines if an activity is research involving human subjects that must be reviewed.
