Institutional Review Board (IRB)
Who we are
Georgia State University’s Institutional Review Board will apply these tenants to all human subjects research, regardless of funding.
Effective Jan. 5, 2015, the CITI Program will replace its Introduction (757) module for the Social Behavioral – Basic Course (required training for individuals conducting human research in social/behavioral fields). Learners will need to complete the full Social Behavioral – Basic Course (all 12 modules) before Jan. 5, 2015, to include the current Introduction 757 module in their credit. If they do not complete the full course before Jan. 5, 2015, the credit for any of the other 11 completed modules will remain, but they will need to complete the new Introduction module 1127 as the Introduction module 757 will no longer be in the course. If you have completed the entire Social Behavioral – Basic Course (all 12 modules including the Introduction 757 module) before Jan. 5, 2015, and your training is current, no action is required. Note: This training only applies to individuals conducting human research in social/behavioral fields as required by the IRB.
