DXA Guidance

On January 26th, 2017, the IRB approved Dual-energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) as a procedure and determined that protocols do not require full board review if DXA is the only qualifying measure requiring full board. Should other qualities of the protocol prove as questionable or needing further clarification, the Committee reserves the right to request full board review. However, investigators must first secure approval for the procedure from the DXA Committee before submitting to the IRB. Contact the Kinesiology Department for more information. 

Post-Approval Documents

*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.
