Institutional review board irb rowan university irb consent forms
Institutional Review Board (IRB)Rowan University IRB – Consent Forms

Pertinent consent form information and language :

  • Study participation is voluntary

Legal Guardians

  • Expectations of the child

  • Participation is voluntary

  • Participation will not affect class standing

    Alternate Consent Form

  • Use onlywhen the identifiable link between the subject and research is the consent form

  • Use of alternate consent form is a waiver of parental consent


Institutional review board irb rowan university irb expedited review
Institutional Review Board (IRB)Rowan University IRB – Expedited Review

Presents no more than minimal risk

Reviewed by the IRB Chair or appointed designee

Research has to meet federal categories

  • Categories include all subjects, regardless of their age

  • Research involving materials – (data, documents, records)

  • Collection of data, voice, video recordings

  • Pregnant women and in vitro fertilization

  • Prisoners

  • Mentally impaired

    Meets one of six (6) federal research categories

Institutional review board q a
Institutional Review Board – Q & A University (CMSRU), and Rowan University IRB

Question #1: Do I need to provide a statement on the consent form describing the extent, if any, to which confidentiality of records identifying the subject will be maintained?

Answer:Yes, a human subject should have knowledge that their participation will be confidential and how confidentiality will be maintained – Title 45: Part 46; Subpart A – Section 46.116(a)(5).

Question #2: Do I need to send an application to the IRB Committee when submitting a research training proposal (institutional type of grants and contracts) to a sponsor, of which it is known that future activities will involve human subjects yet the extent of human research is unknown?

Answer:No, the proposal can be awarded without submitting an IRB application – Title 45: Part 46; Subpart A – Section 46.118

Note:Prior to starting any human subject research, IRB Review Committee review and approval is required.
