Institutional Review Board Training

Training and Tutorials

All IRB members and investigators should read the following basic documents which provide the background for human subjects research:

All faculty and staff members planning to conduct research activities must first receive certification from a recognized Human Subjects certification review course prior to submission of application for research.

Researchers must complete human subjects protection training through an outside institution such as the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) training, which is accepted for a three-year period, or the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is accepted for a one-year period.

The SUNY Delhi IRB Board will review researcher documentation of certification for completion.

Beginning January 1, 2016 new certifications through the SUNY Delhi IRB training will no longer be accepted. Individuals completing the SUNY Delhi IRB training prior to January 1, 2016 will be certified for the three-year period from their original certification date. 

For any clarifications or questions, contact the IRB Chair, Dr. Lisa Heimbauer, at or 607-746-4138.
