Standard Review: Criteria
Standard Reviews of "Human Subjects Protocols" are conducted by the full IRB at quarterly meetings. The investigator and, for student investigators, the faculty research mentor, must attend the meeting in order to answer questions and clarify elements of the protocol.
This level of review is required for proposed activities that do not meet the criteria for “Exemption from Full Review” or “Expedited Review”. Often such projects involve "vulnerable participants" such as minors, clients receiving services, and/or persons at risk of physical or psychological harm, including harm if confidentiality were violated. Titles of some recent "Human Subjects Protocols" undergoing Standard Review:
