Research Tidbits

The Buck Stops with the Principal
Cyndi Garvan
Human subject protection and data
safety are the responsibilities of the
Principal Investigator (PI). The PI takes
the lead role in a research study and can
be a faculty member or a graduate
student (with faculty supervision). It is
the responsibility of the PI to know
what agencies (federal, state, university,

IRB, etc.) govern their research study
and must know how be in compliance
with agency regulations. Knowing the
rules and how to comply with them are
common sense ways to conduct
successful research programs. The
following training are excellent and
appropriate for all members of a
research team:

1) NIH training on protecting human
subject participants,
2) HIPAA training, fl ed1n/training/Re
3) Data Safety,
'CITI- Collaborative Institutional
Training Initiative,'
4) FERPA training,

The following web sites offer rich
information to researchers on the topics
of human subject protection and data

1) Office of Information Technology
3) IRB

4) School Board of Alachua County
