RESEARCH INVOLVING ANIMAL or HUMAN SUBJECT DATA of any kind requires approval in advance of data collection. As approval can be time consuming, it is important for students to think ahead. We strongly advise that students choose non-human research, or research based on literature reviews, or patient –oriented research based on chart reviews, surveys or questionnaires or evaluation of existing programs.   In the case of animal research, the PI/mentor should be consulted to assure that IACUC approval has been secured.
