Any research activity involving human participants that is conducted by The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) faculty, staff, and/or students must be reviewed and approved by the IRB, or determined to qualify for exempt status by the Office of Research Compliance.

There are three levels of IRB review (Minimal, Expedited and Full). The Office of Research Compliance staff or designated member of the IRB is responsible for determining the level of review required for each application submitted. PIs may NOT determine the type of review required.
