This SOP establishes the process for identifying possible institutional conflicts of interests (ICOI) related to UNC-Chapel Hill human subjects research and the process for coordinating with the UNC-Chapel Hill Conflict of Interest Office. The goal of this SOP is to ensure timely, appropriate reviews of possible ICOI.
This policy establishes the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) as the body responsible for ensuring UNC-Chapel Hill conducts human subjects research that is ethical and that complies with all relevant laws and regulations.
This procedure describes the requirements for obtaining consent from human research subjects participating in research conducted under the auspices of UNC-Chapel Hill.
This policy outlines the responsibilities of IRB members for making known any potential or perceived conflicts of interest (COI) concerning protocols reviewed by the IRB. No IRB member may participate in the review of any research project in which they have a COI, except to provide information, as requested. It is the responsibility of each IRB member to disclose any COI related to a study submitted for review and to recuse him/herself from the deliberations and vote by leaving the room.
A repository is a collection of data or biological specimens whose organizers: Receive data or specimens from multiple sources; Maintain the data or specimens over time; and Control access to and use of data or specimens by multiple individuals and/or for multiple purposes, which may evolve over time
Consistent with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s research, teaching and public service missions, the University encourages faculty, staff and students to engage in appropriate outside relationships, including but not limited to private industry and the nonprofit sector.
When some or all of the participants in a research conducted under the auspices of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill) are likely to be vulnerable to coercion or undue influence or have diminished decision-making capacity, the research must include additional safeguards to protect the rights and welfare of these participants.
This scenario arises when: UNC-Chapel Hill is the lead coordinating center responsible for overall study conduct; or A UNC-Chapel Hill employee serves as principal investigator for the entire multi-site study, (unless coordinating function located elsewhere as in some NIH-sponsored groups), or UNC-Chapel Hill is the sponsor (initiates contracts with and disburses funds to other sites).
Community based research (CBR) is research that is conducted as an equal partnership between academic investigators and members of a community. In CBR projects, the community participates fully in all aspects of the research process. Community is often self-defined, but general categories of community include geographic community, a community of individuals with a common problem or issue, or a community of individuals with a common interest or goal.
This SOP establishes the processes and procedures for ensuring the rights, safety, and welfare of research participants are protected when UNC-Chapel Hill shares responsibility for research oversight with another organization.
This document establishes the definitions followed by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill) Human Research Protection Program. This is a non-exhaustive list. Regulations and other documents (e.g. guidance documents issued by federal regulatory agencies) should be referenced when applicable.
This SOP establishes written procedures for initiating a response to an emergency impacting the UNC-Chapel Hill Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) or HRPP operations.
Investigators are ultimately responsible for the conduct of research. Investigators may delegate tasks to appropriately trained and qualified members of their research team. However, investigators must maintain oversight and retain ultimate responsibility for the conduct of those to whom they delegate responsibilities.
The purpose of this SOP to establish written requirements to ensure compliance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements regarding human subjects research.
This SOP establishes written procedures for ensuring prompt review and reporting of any Unanticipated Problems Involving Risks to Subjects or Others, Serious Noncompliance, Continuing Noncompliance, Suspension or Termination of IRB approval.
