Research Assistants

Students assisting a faculty member on a research project that has already received IRB approval can be added to the project by addendum.  The faculty member should submit an Amendment Application Form indicating the student’s name, in what capacity they will be working, and verifying that the student has completed PHRP training. A current PHRP certificate must be submitted. The student should sign and submit the the Research Team Personnel Agreement Form available on our website.

For students working on a side project directly related to a faculty member’s approved research project, an addendum to the original IRB application with the updated information can request that the side project be added to the original approved study. All relevant changes and additions specified in the application should be outlined in an accompanying letter from the faculty mentor.
