Dates during which research with human participants will take place (including all contact with human participants and until analysis of subject identifiable data and records are complete or access to identifiable data and records is no longer necessary):
Starting June 1, 2009, any faculty member or other Loyola employee conducting independent research or overseeing student-conducted research and any student working on independent research, a dissertation, or thesis that involves research with human subjects,is required to complete a free online education program prior to the review of his or her Application for Approval of Investigation Involving Human Participants. If the application is for a classroom project, the faculty member who assigned the project is responsible for completing the online program, acquainting students with the human subjects education, and ensuring that classroom-based projects are conducted in accordance with Loyola University Maryland's Policies and Procedures for Research Involving Human Participants. The online education course can be accessed at http://phrp.nihtraining.com/users/login.php. An initial copy of the program certificate of completion must be submitted to the office of research and sponsored programs, either directly or with an application. Further submission of the certificate is not required unless updated information is released through the online program.
