Research Compliance Requirements

Researchers conducting research in the Human Performance Laboratory must complete required compliance training

Individual laboratories and projects will require additional training. Please consult with your PI or HPL Director, Dr. Lee

Researchers involving human subjects requires approval and oversight by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and FDA

Individual researchers prepare IRB proposals for review and approval. The current UCONN IRB schedule of deadlines is available online each semester. Please plan on submitting your proposal 3 months before study start. Dr. Lee is available for consult and assistance at her Nexus schedule.
