Student's Name (Last, First Middle) *


1. Does this student's proposal involve the use of biohazards or recombinant DNA?*
If yes, this requires an IBC protocol.

2. Does this student's proposal involve the use of vertebrate animals?*
If yes, this requires an IACUC protocol.

3. Does this student's proposal involve the use of human subjects?*
If yes, this requires an IRB protocol.

By checking this box, I am certifying that I understand the following:

  • The student's proposal must mention that the research involves biohazards or recombinant DNA, vertebrate animals, or human subjects, if in fact such research is involved.
  • That the student must obtain certification from one or several of the research review Committees (IRB/IACUC/IBC) by contacting the Research Protections Office  (656-5040) in order to begin research.
  • The CAS Honors Committee will only approve the student's proposal pending Committee (IRB/IACUC/IBC) certification.
  • The Honors Committee must receive a copy of the research review Committee certification before data collection can begin.

Please see our Advice Regarding Honors Student Research page for advice regarding research as well as links to more information regarding the Institutional Review Board.
