All Institutional Review Board (IRB) documents and guidance forms can be found below.
In 2017, the IRB approved Dual energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) as a procedure and determined that protocols do not automatically require full board review. However, depending upon the specifics of the study, full board review may be required. Recently the committee reviewed and approved the following DXA consent forms. Note that investigators must first secure approval for the procedure from the DXA Committee before submitting to the IRB. Contact the Kinesiology Department for more information.
*Some research may use incentives to entice study participation. Generally, to be reimbursed for payments to participants, Accounts Payable requires an acknowledgement form from participants to verify that they have received their incentive payment. However, in the case of anonymous studies where participants’ identities are unidentifiable, this is not attainable. Principal Investigators (PIs) may use the above form to substitute the required information.
