Subject: NIH Human Subject Research Decision Tool


NIH recently shared an announcement that it has updated its human subjects research decision tool<> to reflect changes effective in the 2018 Revised Common Rule.<> The human subjects research decision tool consists in answering a few questions to find out if research could be considered human subjects research or if it may be exempt from federal regulations.

Please note that the scope of this tool is limited. It is to be used only in the research planning phase and is intended only to be used for the purpose of NIH grant submission. Please note that per the University of Florida's institutional policy , regardless of what this tool determines (even if the above tool determines that for NIH purposes the research is non-human or exempt)  all research that involves humans, human tissue, or human data must be submitted to a UF IRB for approval before engaging in the research

If you have any questions please contact the IRB<mailto:> via e-mail or at (352) 273-9600.
