Research Assistants

Students assisting a faculty member on a research project that has already received IRB approval can be added to the project by addendum.  The faculty member should write or email the UCO IRB and indicate the student’s name, indicate in what capacity they will be working, and verify that the student has completed PHRP training (forward a copy of the certificate).  The student should complete the Research Team Personnel Agreement Form available on our website.

For students working on a side project directly related to a faculty member’s approved research project, an addendum to the original IRB application with the updated information can request that the side project be added to the original approved study. All relevant changes and additions specified in the application should be outlined in an accompanying letter from the faculty mentor. The student should complete the Research Team Personnel Agreement Form available on our website.
