- IRB approval is required when an institution is “engaged” in research involving human subject.
- A collaborative research study involving researchers at other institutions may require IRB review at the collaborator’s institution in addition to the UNC Charlotte IRB.
- UNC Charlotte may defer review and approval of the study to another IRB or vice versa – the collaborating institution may defer IRB review and approval to the UNC Charlotte IRB. Each situation is considered individually. Therefore, if your research study involves collaboration with colleagues at other institutions, please contact the Office of Research Compliance for guidance on how to proceed.
