Please be aware that the changes to the federal regulations that govern human subjects research go into effect on January 21st, 2019. Please see our Standard Operating Procedures for this transition to see how these changes will affect your research.
Anyone with a concern about any aspect of research involving human subjects at Georgia Tech or who would like to report a violation of any policies and procedures may contact the Institutional Official/Vice President for Research (VPR), the IRB Chair, any IRB member, a Research Associate, or the Director or Associate Director of the Program of Human Research Protections. Concerns may also be emailed to the IRB team. Reports made to the Office of Research Integrity Assurance will be delivered to the IRB Chair and the Institutional Official/VPR for further action.
No adverse action will be taken against anyone making a good-faith report. No Georgia Tech employee, committee member, student, or other person shall be discriminated against or be subject to any reprisal for reporting, in good faith, concerns or violations of regulations or standards under Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations Part 46 or Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 50, 56, 312 or 812.
Persons with no formal relationship with the Georgia Institute of Technology are also encouraged to register their concerns, also without fear of reprisal or future discrimination.
