Investigator Responsibilities: Protection of Human Research Subjects

YOU, as a UIC investigator, are responsible for conducting research in an ethical and professional manner. This responsibility entails a positive obligation to know and act in accordance with federal regulations (both the general regulations pertaining to human subjects protection in 45 CFR 46 and 21 CFR 50 & 56, and any specific regulations that may be imposed by the federal agency funding the research), state and federal laws (HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a federal law relevant to all research involving medical records), and UIC policies and procedures.
