Revisions to Human Subject Regulations
The revised Common Rule went into effect on January 21, 2019. A revised application form and informed consent template is now available. Applications submitted prior to January 21, 2019 will not be affected by these changes, but anything received after that date will need to be submitted on the new form.

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is committed to providing a comprehensive and compliant Research with Human Subjects program for researchers, students, and potential human subjects. At K-State, the Committee on Research Involving Human Subjects serves as the IRB and is mandated by federal laws and regulations for oversight of all activities involving research with human subjects.
