Student Research is Training Research

For many students, their research studies are their first attempt at conducting a full study and submitting to the IRB.  Thus, the Board feels that the benefit of these studies is to train future researchers and that the information gathered may not be beneficial to the scientific community (although there are exceptions).  Because the benefit to risk ratio is low, the Board asks that the risks in a student’s study be minimized. Please take a moment with your student and review the research protocol.  Help the student to analyze the data collection procedures and assess if there are risks to the participants in the study.
