Institutional Review Board




On February 17th, Nicole Vouvalis began as the new director of Utah State University’s Institutional Review Board.

USU's Institutional Review Board has created a short list of questions faculty members can consider to prepare for the upcoming spring semester.

Richard Gordin, the interim chair of the Institutional Review Board (IRB), stepped down from his position on June 29 after a three-year term on this board.

Stuart Howell, retired Logan City School District administrator who has served the Institutional Review Board since 1995, stepped down from his service as the board's community representative on July 1.

Protis, USU's online program for submitting and tracking research protocols, is well underway, and the Institutional Review Board is now working to retroactively transfer previous paper protocols to the system.

All USU faculty are invited to attend a new webinar series offered by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs. It will be broadcast on Apr. 26 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the Merrill Cazier Library, room 122.
