Upcoming IRB Workshops and Outreach Activities
OIRB Fall Workshop Series
Submitting to the IRB?? The OIRB fall workshop series has been scheduled for September and October (see attached flyer). These workshops cover a variety of topics relevant to IRB submission and review including human research protection regulations, an overview of the submission process, writing an IRB protocol and consent form, avoiding common mistakes and navigating the IRBNet submission database. Due to UNM’s limited on campus operations, workshops will be conducted via Zoom. The links to the various workshops will be posted on the relevant day on our calendar. To ensure a spot, email email@example.com and tell us which workshops you would like to attend.

Chair and Associate Dean for Research (ADR) prior to submitting their request to the IRB. All requests must include details that address requirements as outlined in the UNM IRB plan.
