CITI (Collaborative IRB Training Initiative): Required training in order to be certified as eligible to engage in human subject research at Purdue University. All researchers on an IRB protocol must complete the CITI training before the IRB protocol will be approved. Initial and continuing education (every 5 years) in human subject protections are required.
If you need help with your IRB protocol application the IRB Mentoring program was created as part of our ongoing efforts to assist IPFW faculty and staff with their research and sponsored program endeavors. Faculty members with IRB application experience will, upon request to ORESP, review your application or revision, and offer guidance as to how best fulfill the requirements of an IRB protocol application.
