Human Subject Review

Overview

Per Federal regulations as prescribed in 45 CFR Part 46, any faculty, student and/or administrator/staff planning to engage in research involving human subjects must receive approval from the Siena College Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to initiating any research activities, on or off campus. 

Currently, the IRB employs two (2) primary types of review depending on the degree of risk to subject(s): expedited and full review.

The IRB will consider proposals under Exemption Review. Below is the link to the Exemption Review policy with definitions of the six (6) Federally defined exemption categories.
