Student PIs and Faculty Advisors: Know Your Responsibilities

Event Date: 

Thu, Apr 29, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm


The UI is one of the few academic institutions that still allows student researchers to serve as the Principal Investigator (PI) of their own project involving human subjects research. But this is only possible if the student has adequate training and expertise to serve as the PI AND has an engaged Faculty Advisor who agrees to oversee the project, from study design and HawkIRB submission through to completion of the project

This presentation will provide an overview of the expectations for students who plan to conduct research and the responsibilities of Faculty Advisors of student research projects. You must know the responsibilities for whichever position you hold to ensure the ethical conduct of research and the protection of human research subjects.


Pre-registration is recommended.
