Studies that do not involve human subjects or do not meet definition of research are considered Not Human Subjects Research (NHSR) and do not require review in IBISResearch. If you think your study is NHSR, please follow instructions on this page.

Studies that are Human Subjects research must be submitted in IBISResearch for IRB review (exempt, expedited, or full board review). See below for instructions on submitting in IBISResearch.

  • Expanded Use of Investigational Drugs and Devices

    The regulations allow clinicians to use an unapproved drug, biologic or device without prior IRB approval in limited circumstances; however, the clinician must comply with FDA requirements in these situations. 

    When seeking to use an unapproved product, it is critical that the patient and his/her licensed physician consider all possible risks because the FDA has not determined whether the products are safe. Such products may, or may not, be effective in the treatment of the condition.
