Read and consider the following from the Policy Statement of the St. Lawrence University Institutional Review Board as you complete this form:
In reviewing each proposal for projects involving human participants, the IRB shall determine whether these participants will be placed at risk, and if so whether:
(a) The risks to the participant are so outweighed by the sum of the benefit to the participant or the importance of the knowledge to be gained as to warrant a decision to allow the participant to accept these risks;
(b) The rights and welfare of any such participants will be adequately protected; and
(c) Legally effective informed consent will be obtained by adequate and appropriate means (see below for information regarding the informed consent statement).
(d) The person(s) proposed to conduct the project are competent and qualified.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the submission of an application for approval from the IRB, please contact Dr. Cathy Crosby-Currie at (315) 229-5167 or via electronic mail at email@example.com.
