IRB members meet to review IRB applications. MSU IRBs includes faculty members and graduate students, non-affiliated and non-scientific members. IRB Chairs manage meetings, conduct noncompliance investigations, review unanticipated problems involving risks to subjects or others, and mediate participant complaints.
Reviews studies in the biomedical and clinical departments, with the exception of multi-community research. These colleges include the College of Human Medicine, Nursing, and Osteopathic Medicine.
Reviews non-biomedical human research studies from the non-biomedical or clinical departments.
Review studies typically from Colleges:
Agriculture and Natural Resources,
Arts and Letters,
Communication Arts and Sciences,
International Studies and Programs,
James Madison,
Natural Science,
Social Science,
Plus studies conducted by
Urban Affairs Program,
MSU Libraries,

Research in which the only involvement of human participants will be in one or more of the six exempt categories (for HHS) or the four exempt categories (for FDA) is exempt from the human research protection regulations. This means that a research study that is determined to meet the criteria for exempt status by the MSU IRB is exempt from further initial and continuing review by the IRB, with the exception of limited PI required reporting. However, exempt research is not exempt from protection of human participants and application of the ethical principles outlined in the Belmont Report such as informed consent, equitable selection, and risk/benefit assessment.
A research study that is determined to meet one or more of nine categories (in HHS & FDA) and is no more than minimal risk can undergo expedited review. These projects are still subject to the regulations for the protection of humans involved in research.

These projects can be reviewed and approved by the IRB chair or by one or more experienced reviewers designated by the chair from among members of the IRB.
The project does not need to be reviewed by the full convened IRB to receive approval. It can be approved between IRB meetings (a faster schedule).
Full Board
Full Board: At MSU, convened meeting dates and deadlines are posted on the human research website. If an initial application is submitted by the submission deadline, it will be placed on the upcoming IRB meeting’s agenda for review.
At MSU, IRB administrators make the determination of exempt status . Processing of applications for exempt status is estimated to take 7-9 working days.
Typically, the submission deadline is approximately 3 weeks before the meeting date.
Review times are estimated to take 4-6 weeks for initial applications, 10-15 2-4 weeks for revision to an approved study, and 3-6 weeks for renewed approval.

Part B: Basic Ethical Principles
...Three basic principles, among those generally accepted in our cultural tradition, are particularly relevant to the ethics of research involving human subjects: the principles of respect of persons, beneficence and justice.
On July 12, 1974, the National Research Act (Pub. L. 93-348) was signed into law, there-by creating the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research. One of the charges to the Commission was to identify the basic ethical principles that should underlie the conduct of biomedical and behavioral research involving human subjects and to develop guidelines which should be followed to assure that such research is conducted in accordance with those principles.

In carrying out the above, the Commission was directed to consider:
(i) the boundaries between biomedical and behavioral research and the accepted and routine practice of medicine,
(ii) the role of assessment of risk-benefit criteria in the determination of the appropriateness of research involving human subjects,
(iii) appropriate guidelines for the selection of human subjects for participation in such research and
(iv) the nature and definition of informed consent in various research settings.
About Belmont Commission
Type of review will depend upon many factors
Federal Code of Regulations
At MSU, the FDA regulations for the protection of human subjects are applicable when a planned activity is a FDA regulated clinical investigation involving human subjects.

The FDA human subject protection regulations have similarities to the HHS regulations but do have differences, such as the scope of oversight (clinical investigations), provisions for emergency use, and differing informed consent requirements such as inclusion of language regarding FDA access to records and registration on the clinicaltrials.gov website when appropriate.

In addition, the FDA has other regulations that may be applicable to a research activity, such as regulations that apply to the use of investigational new drugs and investigational devices.
U.S. Food and Drug Administration
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act: Federal requirements for the protection of privacy of students’ educational records.
See MSU-specific guidelines at http://goo.gl/Y6xDA
The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment:
Federal law sets forth additional requirements in elementary and/or secondary public schools when certain activities are conducted (e.g. survey, analysis, physical examinations) or if funded by the Department of Education (e.g. surveys, analysis, or evaluation).
The Health Information Portability and Accountability Act:
Federal legal requirements for use or disclosure of protected health information.

Follow the IRB Application Process
When assessing subject selection, researchers should consider:
Purpose of research, requirements of proposed study design, and subject population
Recruitment and enrollment procedures
Fairness and equitability of proposed research design
Inclusion and exclusion criteria
Payments to subjects and potential influence
The informed consent process must:
Allow the prospective participant or representative sufficient opportunity to decide whether or not to participate.
Minimize the possibility for coercion or undue influence.
Include information that is given to the prospective participant or representative in a language understandable to the subject.

The informed consent process cannot include any exculpatory language:
Through which the prospective participant or representative waives or appears to waive any of the participant’s legal rights.
That releases or appears to release the investigator, sponsor, institution, or agent from liability for negligence.
