For Faculty & Researchers

In order to conduct research safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements, there are many trainings that need to be completed by faculty and researchers prior to and during the conduct of the research. Further, staff who process proposals, administer grant awards and negotiate contracts and other research-related agreements in support of this research also need to complete required training. Please see below for a list of the required trainings for either Faculty and Researchers or Staff.

  • Institutional Review Board (IRB) – Human Subjects Research Training. UF has three IRBs and utilizes the services of Western IRB (WIRB) for industry sponsored clinical trials. While all IRBs are governed by the same set of federal rules, each IRB has their own training requirements.
