Performing Research at CSI
All CSI faculty, staff, students and administrators who are conducting research with human participants or non-human animal subjects must apply for and receive UI-IRB (University Integrated Institutional Review Board) or IACUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee) approval, respectively, before commencement of their research project (whether at CSI or at another location). No retroactive approval is ever given. All applications to the UI-IRB or the IACUC are processed through the campus Office for the Protection of Research Subjects. The staff of the Office for the Protection of Research Subjects are willing to provide education concerning human and non-human animal research regulations and the process for applying for approval.
