Applying For an IRB Exemption

Federal regulation and university policy provide that certain human research activities may be eligible for a determination of “exempt” status by the IRB.  A Principal Investigator must obtain such a determination from the IRB prior to initiating the study. An exemption from IRB review does not equate to an exemption from other prevailing regulations, laws, or university policies

Collaborating with an Individual External Organization

An IRB Authorization Agreement may be executed when a University at Albany researcher wishes to engage in research with external organization(s).  When appropriate and allowable, the Agreement is used to allow for just one institution's IRB to review a multi-site study to avoid the need for multiple IRB review.  Either the UAlbany IRB or (one of) the other site(s) may review the study.
