National Institutes of Health (NIH) Funded Human Subjects Research

Human subjects research funded by the NIH must adhere to some requirements that are not necessary for other sponsors. These include use of a Single IRB in certain circumstances, inclusion of language about Certificates of Confidentiality in consent forms and in the event the study is considered to be a clinical trial, specific requirements for clinical trials.

All researchers with NIH funded human subjects research should review information about these requirements.
