Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB)

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a federally-mandated review board, which exists to protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects. All researchers (faculty, staff and students) must submit their research projects which have human subjects to the IRB for review and approval.

 To conduct research with human subjects at UW-Stout, you must:

  1. Take the online Human Subjects training*.
  2. Complete and submit the IRB Protocol form.
  3. Wait for approval before beginning your research.
  4. If needed, you can apply for an extension of your project.
