POLICY


  1. It is the policy of the UIC IRB to assure that the appropriate approvals, education,
    and/or written agreements are completed when human subject research involves
    non-UIC performance sites.
  2. UIC OPRS and UIC IRBs ensure that the appropriate approvals and/or written
    agreements are completed when human subjects research involves domestic non-
    UIC performance sites. (Refer to UIC HSPP policy and procedure UIC IRB Review of Domestic Research Involving Non-UIC Sites, Agencies, Organizations, or Institutions); and
  3. The UIC OPRS, UIC IRBs, and UIC faculty, staff, students, and UIC-authorized
    affiliates are required to comply with the terms of the UIC FWA regardless of the
    geographic location of the research or the research being conducted.
  4. UIC employees or agents, including faculty, staff, and students, who intend to
    conduct activities that may in part represent research with human subjects as
    outlined in this policy and procedure are not authorized to determine independently
    that the project is subject to the HSPP, except in limited circumstances as a
    preliminary suggestion. UIC employee or agent “refers to individuals who (1) act on
    behalf of UIC; (2) exercise institutional authority or responsibility; or (3) perform
    institutionally designated activities.” (OHRP Guidance on Engagement of Institutions
    in Human Subjects Research, dated October 16, 2008). UIC employees or agents
    can include staff and students among others, regardless of whether the individual is
    receiving compensation. (OHRP Guidance on Engagement of Institutions in Human
    Subjects Research, dated October 16, 2008).
  5. If UIC is not engaged as part of adjunct faculty research, UIC IRB approval is not
    required. Adjunct faculty may still refer to their UIC credentials in publications
    resulting from this research
  6. Individuals engaged in research must complete applicable educational requirements.
    Refer to UIC HSPP policy and procedure Investigator and Research Personnel Education Program and Training Requirements.
