NIH REQUIRED EDUCATION IN THE PROTECTION OF HUMAN RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS As indicated in previous OSP communication and the Provost’s letters of June 28, 2000 and August 29, 2000, NIH policy regarding education on the protection of human research became effective with applications submitted as of October 1, 2000. For competitive proposals, i.e., new and competitive renewals, this training does not have to be completed prior to submission of the proposal. However, before funds are awarded for these applications investigators must provide a description of education completed for each individual responsible for the design and conduct of the research. For non-competitive proposals, the training must be completed prior to submission of the non-competing proposal. We suggest that in addition to listing the names of the individuals dealing with human subjects the statement to be submitted to NIH should read something like “all the researchers on this application have received appropriate training in the use of humans as subjects. Specifically, each has received a copy of the booklet “Protecting Study Volunteers in Research” from the University of Rochester Medical Center and referenced as acceptable education materials by the NIH, and has taken and passed the examination provided with that material or has taken and passed the MIT web based online course administered by the MIT Committee on the Use of Humans as Experimental Subjects.” Attached are the frequently asked questions that NIH has prepared that should assist you in understanding this training requirement.
