Environmental Health and Safety plays a key role in the review and approval of research conducted both on this campus and in collaboration with non-University entities.
The Protocol Approval section provides direction for the application and approval process for any research involving the use of animals, biologicals, human subjects, or radioactive materials. All research utilizing any of these elements must submit an application specific to each area to be reviewed by the appropriate committee. Each committee is comprised of faculty, staff, community members, and an EH&S representative. The role of each committee is to ensure that the proposed research meets all federal, state, and funding agency compliance, health, and safety requirements.
