If you are a faculty member, staff member, or student at Grinnell College and your research involves the use of human participants (either directly or through records), your research requires Grinnell IRB review. Please consult the information under the tab "Categories of Research" which presents exempt, expedited, and full board reviews. If you remain unsure whether your project requires IRB, please ask the IRB (email@example.com). If your project does require IRB review, all researchers involved with the project need to complete ethics training.
The web page of the Office of Human Participants provides a decision tree to help investigators determine if their project is research that requires IRB review. http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/policy/checklists/decisioncharts.html
