Are you doing or planning to do research about living humans?
For example, will you be conducting a survey, interviews, experiment or analysis of data about living people as part of your research program or your thesis / project course?
If yes, federal regulations require that you must contact the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for Protection of Human Subjects Research at SUNY Polytechnic before beginning your research.
If you are unsure, please contact the IRB anyway.
Prior approval of the SUNY Polytechnic IRB is necessary for any research conducted on living people in which faculty, staff, students or agents of SUNY Polytechnic are engaged.
