The University of Minnesota requires a basic level of Human Subjects' Protection Training for all investigators and research personnel regardless of the source of funding.
Human Subject Protection Training for all personnel involved with a study must be completed and its completion registered with Research Education and Oversight (REO) before you can receive IRB approval. This training requirement is designed to provide information and guidance to faculty, professionals, and administrators to promote the University's ideals for scientific and scholarly integrity, and to minimize institutional risks.
For information on how to complete and register human subjects training, see the REO Website
