Institutional Review Board

Research Involving Human Participants

Any research involving humans or human tissues conducted under the auspices of APSU must be reviewed by the Austin Peay State University Institutional Review Board (APSU IRB). Research with minimal involvement of human participants, such as surveys or questionnaires, require some procedural APSU IRB review. Investigators are required to submit to the College of Graduate Studies/APSU IRB a completed Application for Project Approval. Instructions and an example of an Informed Consent Document are provided with the application format at  http://www.apsu.edu/cogs/irb.
