Steps for approval of research at Missouri S&T with human subjects:

  1. All key personnel involved in conducting the research should complete Human Subjects Training.  Once on the training (CITI) site, use the Create an account "register" button to access Missouri University of Science and Technology trainings.  After the training is complete, please file the completion form with the IRB office.
  2. Complete MSTIRB1 (initial application form) and submit electronically to irb@mst.edu with attachments, if appropriate.
    1. Use this chart to determine the appropriate category for your proposed research or contact Dr. Northcut.

You should anticipate and allow for a reasonable amount of time (2 weeks) for your application to be reviewed, even if it is for an exempt or expedited application.

If you project is DoD-supported (including cases where S&T is the recipient of a sub-award from the direct recipient of DoD funds), please note the additional requirements outlined in the “Guidance: Additional Requirements for Department of Defense Human Subjects Research” document below.  Note that one of the requirements is for your proposed research to undergo prior scientific review by your Department Chair or his/her designee prior to submitting your IRB application.
