NSU has determined that all individuals involved in research with human subjects, including investigators (principal and co-) as well as members of the research team (i.e. research assistants) must complete the CITI: Course in the Protection of Human Subjects. This is to ensure that research activities are conducted in an ethical manner that protects the rights of human participants.
Please note that the CITI program must be completed prior to submitting to the IRB for initial review of a protocol, or for continuing review or revision/amendment of a previously approved protocol.
The CITI Program is a free training service offered to all researchers conducting human subjects research in affiliation with NSU. If you are prompted to pay for the training, please contact Crystal Bass at 954-262-5376 for guidance on how to correctly register for the free CITI Training Program for human subjects research.
